"This is the bst piece of writing for the public on serious parapsychology to come along in many years. It is both well written and well time, providing hot-off-the-press coverage of themost recent developments in parapsychological research and thinking."

In this impressively documented work, Dr. Richard S. Broughton, Director of Research at the world-renowned Institute of Parapscyhology, illuminates the history and evolution of parapsychology and directly addresses the raging controversy over its very existence as a science. At the heart of the book he brings together a broad range of recent parapsychological research, from the U.S., China, and the former Soviet Union, complete with full descriptions of the actual techniques and explanations of how researchers apply scientific methods to study the baffling experiences that qualify as psi phenomena.
