Dreaming: Anthropological and Psychological Interpretations
School of American Research Press, 1992 - Social Science - 297 pages
The ten contributors to this book-anthropologists and psychologists-explore the ways in which dreams are remembered, recounted, shared (or not shared), interpreted, and used by people from New Guinea to the Andes. The authors take a major step toward moving the study of dreaming from the margins to the mainstream of anthropological thought.
