The Handbook of Near-Death Experiences: Thirty Years of Investigation, edited by Janice Miner Holden, EdD, Bruce Greyson MD, and Debbie James, RN/MSN. Foreword by Kenneth Ring, PhD. A careful overview of published studies about NDEs.

The Handbook of Near-Death ExperiencesExperts from around the world share the history and current state of near-death experience (NDE) knowledge. They explore controversies in the field, offer stories from their research, and express their hopes for the future of investigation into this fascinating phenomenon.

As modern medical techniques for resuscitation advance, NDEs are more frequently reported. These include more than the popular notions of moving through a tunnel or seeing a light. They also include people, once revived, knowing things their knowledge of which can't currently be explained. As The Handbook of Near-Death Experiences: Thirty Years of Investigation makes clear, great controversy exists in the medical and psychological fields concerning NDEs. Are they caused by physiological changes in the brain, or are they biological reactions to oxygen loss or impending death? Are they a product of changing states of consciousness? Or are they caused by something else altogether? All of these ideas and more are discussed in this unique and comprehensive volume.

Published by Praeger, the book is built around presentations from the first two days of the 2006 IANDS conference. That event at The University of Texas M. D. Anderson Cancer Center in Houston brought together NDE researchers from around the world to discuss the major findings of three decades of exploration into NDEs. The result is this scholarly Handbook of Near-Death Experiences, edited by Janice Miner Holden, EdD; Bruce Greyson, MD; and Debbie James, RN/MSN.

The book is sure to find its way to college classes and the library of any serious student of NDEs. Publisher information is at http://www.abc-clio.com/product.aspx?id=54236.
