The Poltergeist Experience

Rogo, D. Scott

 This is an introduction to poltergeists by a parapsychological investigator and author. Much of the impetus for writing it comes from a firsthand experience of poltergeists that occurred when Rogo investigated a case in 1974. He writes: "In one respect this book is a result of that case, for it prompted me to reevaluate and restudy everything I had ever learned about the phenomena" (pp. 12-13). Rogo surveys various types of poltergeist activity with illustrations from actual cases, but emphasis is placed on the psychology of the poltergeist. He presents a theory of poltergeist agency and takes pains to make the point that "the poltergeist is a terrible force" (p. 284).
