The fifth volume of Imagery emanates from the matrix of presentations offered after the conventions of the American Association for Mental Imagery for the years 1987 and 1988. The first meeting was held in Toronto; the second at Yale University. An overview of the presentations covered such a variety of subjects that we thought the subtitle would be most appropriately--Current Perspectives. For the first time in five volumes, two contributions are related to anthropological imagery by Caughey and Brink. John Caughey, whose book, Imaginary Social Worlds pioneered the social psychology approach to the silent inner imagination, offers a fine chapter in anthropological imagery of his own experiences with Sufi mystics in Pakistan and Micronesian Islanders in the Western Pacific compared to middle-class Americans. Nicholas Brink follows with a chapter on "The Healing Powers of the Native American Medicine Wheel. " Theoretical studies with interesting experimental designs are presented by Huneycutt, 'fA Functional Analysis of Imagined Interaction Activity in Everyday Life" by Kunzendorf and Hoyle on "Auditory Percepts, Mental Images and Hypnotic Hallucinations: Similarities and Differences in Auditory Evoked Potentials"; and by Giambia and Grodsky on "Task- Unrelated Images and Thoughts While Reading. " The relationship between creativity and mental imgery is presented by H. Rosenberg and W. Trusheim entitled, "Creative Transformations: How Visual Artists, Musicians and Dancers Use Mental Imagery in Their Work," and Colalillo-Kates discusses "Dreamjourneys: Using Guided Imagery and Transformational Fantasy With Children.

Le site de l'éditeur indique : "Throughout history, humans have always been fascinated by drugs and altered states. Despite the risk of addiction, many have used drugs as technologies to induce moments of meaning-making transcendence. This book traces the quest for transcendence and meaning through drugs in the modern West. Starting with the Romantic fascination with opium, it goes on to chronicle the discovery of anesthetics, psychiatric and religious interest in hashish, the bewitching power of mescaline and hallucinogenic fungi, as well as the more recent uses of LSD. It fills a major gap in our understanding of contemporary alternative and in the study of countercultures and popular culture. Today we are seeing increased social and scientific attention to both the positive and the negative effects of psychoactive drugs, particularly following the legalization of marijuana for medicinal and/or recreational use in some US states, as well as court cases involving the sacramental use of drugs. This fascinating and wide-ranging exploration of the controversial relationship between drugs and spirituality could not be more timely."

Bijan was born in 1961 in Tehran, Iran. Although he was a brilliant student in his early and middle school years he lost his interest in academic studies to the degree that he quit college twice and returned to the spiritualism and mysticism instead. By the rise of the Islamic regime in 1979 in Iran his life began to drastically change where it took him to some of the darkest and most unimaginable places and situations he could have ever thought of. Was he eventually able to overcome his challenges?! He paid a heavy price to find the answer to this question. Bijan currently lives in Toronto-Canada. He is the founder and leader of the Generation 8, an organization reaching out to Iranians all over the world through modern art, music, and media.

Over the last century, Western portrayals of shamanism have changed radically toward an ethnopoetics of shamanism. While shamanic practices had long been indirectly registered by Westerners, it is only since the late nineteenth century that they have taken on symbolic import within discourses of primitivism and debates over magic and rationality.

The Teachings of Don Juan: A Yaqui Way of Knowledge, purportedly a legitimate work of anthropology describing author Carlos Castaneda's apprenticeship to a Mexican Indian sorcerer, was first published in 1968, and was followed by eleven more books by this author. All of his books achieved a very wide readership. To the dismay of many of his devoted readers, however, Castaneda has been shown to have been a charlatan, arguably the most infamous charlatan of the twentieth century. But what if the Mexican sorcerer, Juan Matus, with whom Castaneda claimed he had studied, were shown to have been a real person? I believe the circumstantial evidence strongly suggests that he was. Might these books not be read or reread with replenished interest and purpose?

It all started out in pre-adolescence in the mid-1960s. Stuck in the house during those lazy hazy summer days I read Illustrated Classics comic books inside the backyard screened porch. While slurping on a Popsicle those wondrous images and suspenseful narratives whisked me away to worlds of adventure (The Three Musketeers), terror (Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde), and glory (Camelot). And walking back from the general store to our seaside cottage in Green Harbor, I used to read the latest baseball news from Sports Illustrated. Reading was my way of combating boredom and loneliness."
