About this title


Here is a fascinating collection of case histories dealing with the still fledgling science of hypnotism. Hypnotism has long been practiced without being fully understood - in the Svengali tradition it is many times visualized as a means of manipulating the subject's will, possibly for the perpetration of crimes. But its place in criminology is based on much more. Witnesses are hypnotized to provide repressed details from the scene of a crime or an accurate description of criminals. Suspects in hypnotic trance offer forgotten alibis or sometimes motives and confessions. Eugene Black, well-known author-researcher of infamous crimes and crime detection techniques, guides us through the intriguing history of hypnosis, including its battle for legal acceptance and the significant contributions the practice has made to the fields of justice and law enforcement. The tool of hypnosis is used throughout the exciting detective work and tense courtroom battles which make "Hypnosis: A New Tool in Crime Detection" a fast-paced reading adventure.
