"The Roots of Modern Hypnosis: From Esdaile to the 1961 International Congress on Hypnosis encompasses the following three seminal works on the evolution of hypnosis:
Hypnosis in Medicine and Surgery (originally Mesmerism in India, circa 1850), is an exciting exploration by Dr. James Esdaile of anesthesia produced by ¡¡±Mesmerism¡¨ and its descendant, clinical hypnosis.
The Fundamental Principles of Hypnosis is a classic explanation of scientific hypnosis by Stanley Krebs, Ph.D. Fascinating reports describe hypnotherapy circa 1906.
The Nature of Hypnosis reproduces the annals of the first modern International Congress on Hypnosis (1961). Historical and clinical-experimental issues are addressed.
These volumes are being re-issued by The Institute for Research in Hypnosis Publication Society, a society dedicated to preserving and presenting important historical and modern works in clinical hypnotherapy.
The Institute for Research in Hypnosis and Psychotherapy is directed by Dr. Milton V. Kline, who edited these texts and contributed a new introduction.
