Summary Read First Chapter image missing

"The book is timely, and introduces a whole new generation of serious dream workers unfettered by ideological loyalties and regressive news of the dream. It deals with an important but relatively unexplored dimension of dreaming consciousness. I found the book refreshing and stimulating. I hope it will chart a new direction for dream studies." -- Montague Ullman, Clinical Professor of Psychiatry Emeritus, Albert Einstein College of Medicine

This multidisciplinary volume examines the cultural and social relevance of dream studies, looking at various ways that the field can contribute to the resolution of the modern West's most troubling social issues. The essays offer novel insights on education, sexual abuse, ecology, crime, race, gender, religion, politics, death, and cross-cultural conflict. The contributors argue that the study of dreams can provide valuable resources to regain a vibrant, trustworthy sense of moral and spiritual orientation in life.

Kelly Bulkeley is Chair of the Board of Directors of the Association for the Study of Dreams, and teaches at the Graduate Theological Union at University of California at Berkeley. He is the author of The Wilderness of Dreams: Exploring the Religious Meanings of Dreams in Modern Western Culture, also published by SUNY Press, and Spiritual Dreaming.
