About this title


From dust jacket: Whether we regard them as psychic phenomena or as superstitious delusions, a scientific explanations sought for certain happenings that occur from time to time in Jamaica, B.W.I. The cases dealt with include examples of poltergeist phenomena wherein persons remain uninjured when stuck by stones that come flying through the air and cannot be traced to any human source; unaccountable appearance and disappearance of uncanny visitors; swinging doors and doors that open and close themselves despite bolts and locks; mysterious rappings and apparent obsessions; and many other weird instances that are not easily explained. In the course of the study the following topics are discussed in detail: "Jamaica Witchcraft", Applied Magic" "Popular Belief in Ghosts," Funeral Customs," and "Poltergeist," "Documentations"...The author, Joseph John Williams, was a Jesuit ethnologist.
