The author describes some of the famous experiments in the history of psychical research. These include the "Verity case" in which a man transmitted his own image to his fiancee and her family; the clairvoyant drawings of Mrs. Upton Sinclair; and the numerous tests of psychokinesis and other physical phenomena conducted by the controversial British investigator Harry Price. He also examines modern trends of psychical research, including some startling results from the Soviet Union, which suggest that the mysterious powers of the mind may be even more varied than previously supposed. The many photographs and diagrams-plus five specially commissioned paintings-complement the text and illustrate some of the remarkable psychic events in history.
