Originally $88.00.

The 1784 discovery of magnetic sleep--an artificially induced trance-like state--by a follower of Mesmer marked the beginning of the modern era of psychological healing, for it revealed a realm of mental activity that was not available to the conscious mind but could affect conscious thought and action. Adam Crabtree traces the history of the discovery of magnetic sleep, shows how it was brought to bear on physical healing, and explains its relationship to paranormal phenomena, hypnotism, psychological healing, and the diagnosis and investigation of dissociative phenomena such as multiple personality.

"Crabtree brings new insights to the field...showing how it was a cultural movement to which we are still indebted. The book will appeal to all interested in the exploration of the human mind."--Henri Ellenberger, author of Discovery of the Unconscious
