Readers ... will be very interested in the recently published version of Th odore Flournoy's wonderfully written examination of a young medium whom he has diagnosed as having [multiple personality disorder]. This volume is a double treat because in addition to the main body ... it has a fascinating and in-depth scholarly introduction ... that places the book in its historical context and sheds light on its importance then and now.--Contemporary Psychology "[Flournoy's study] of a single, complex, extraordinary case remains one of the most detailed case histories of multiple personality theory.... Simply put, [it] is to current-day multiple personality theory what Anna O. was to psychoanalysis--one of the founding cases."--Mark S. Micale "Two books that became classics in dynamic psychiatry appeared in 1900: Flournoy's From India to the Planet Mars and Freud's Interpretation of Dreams.... [The former] told the story of Th odore Flournoy's five-year investigation in Geneva of Catherine Muller [whom he called "H l ne Smith"], who claimed to have the gift of clairvoyance and the ability to reincarnate, in her mediumistic trances, phases of her previous lives.... This book, as entertaining as a novel by Jules Verne or H. G. Wells, is a deep-reaching analysis of some of the subtle processes of the subconscious mind. It brings evidence of subliminal imaging as a creative and continuous activity."--Henri Ellenberger, The Discovery of the Unconscious
