All in the Mind: Reincarnation, Hypnotic Regression, Stigmata, Multiple Personality, and Other Little-Understood Powers of the Mind

Wilson, Ian

 Historian/journalist Wilson provides an overview of claims of reincarnation and the recall of past lives under hypnosis. He discusses the research of Ian Stevenson, the Bridey Murphy case, and several cases resulting from the current wave of interest in hypnotic age-regression. He uncovers fresh facts in the old cases and presents some new ones. He proposes that the phenomena of cryptomnesia, multiple personality, and Hilgard's "hidden observer" can account for most cases, but admits that there is a residue defying explanation. The book has been meticulously researched and referenced and is as readable as it is instructive.
