Oneselves: Multiple Personalities, 1811-1981

Baldwin, Louis

 There are 28 chapters, averaging 6 pages each, each consisting of a sketch of a case, often well known, of multiple personality. Some, such as Ansel Bourne, Helene Smith, Doris Fischer, and Patience Worth appear in the parapsychological literature. The cases date from 1811-1981 and are listed in alphabetical order. In the Foreword, the author points out that only in 1980 did the American Psychiatric Association define multiple personality as a distinct disorder, but diagnosed cases of multiple personality were already on the rise in the 1970s (50-plus cases in that decade as opposed to 90 in the preceding century and a half). Baldwin observes that persistent time loss, chronic sleepwalking, automatic writing, and hallucinations are usually closely associated with multiple personality, and sometimes possession ~nd mediumship abilities as well.
