Abstract

Originally published in Contemporary Psychology: APA Review of Books, 1979, Vol 24(7), 585–586. Reviews the book, Expanding Dimensions of Consciousness by A. Arthur Sugerman and Ralph E. Tarter (Eds.) (1978). Although this book is somewhat uneven in scholarship, it provides a consistently serious treatment of a reasonably comprehensive collection of areas within the realm of altered states. Its literature reviews range from nonexistent to selective, but most areas are treated with enough scope, originality, and canniness to make the chapters worthwhile. It provides a happy mix of stimulating research, abstraction, and description of “altered” inner experience. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2006 APA, all rights reserved)
