Originally published in Contemporary Psychology: APA Review of Books, 1979, Vol 24(6), 475–476. Reviews the book, The Mind in Sleep: Psychology and Psychophysiology by Arthur M. Arkin, John S. Antrobus, and Steven J. Ellman (Eds.) (see record 1980-00283-000). The most valuable contribution of this book is to provide an extensively annotated bibliography of the first quarter-century of sleep laboratory psychology. It also provides an opportunity to review the progress of this field, to identify methodological problems, and to plan future work. The authors state that the book may be of interest to mindbody theorists, yet there is no specific discussion of this issue. There is no mention of the important possibility that the existence of an animal model provides unique opportunities to the sleep psychologist. The book seems unduly provincial and narrow as well as so tediously long that even some insiders may become impatient with it. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2006 APA, all rights reserved)
