This fascinating reference covers the major topics concerning dreaming and sleep, based on the latest empirical evidence from sleep research as well as drawn from a broad range of dream-related interdisciplinary contexts, including history and anthropology.

The encyclopedia is divided into two volumes and is arranged alphabetically by entry. Topics include nightmares and their treatment, how sleep and dreams change across the lifetime, and the new field of evolution of sleep and dream.

"This two-volume set provides truly interdisciplinary coverage of sleep and dreams. . . . All entries are signed and feature references; the book includes a 36-page appendix of topically arranged additional resources and an excellent index. Summing Up: Highly recommended." - Choice "Gathering empirical knowledge from many different disciplines, the editors of this set delve into the history, science, and folklore surrounding sleep and dreams. . . . The editors-a psychologist and a neurologist, respectively-have brought together an impressive list of contributors from around the world. . . . There is much here that will not be found in other reference sources." - Booklist "This is a great place to find a wide array of sleep topics and resources and will prove very helpful in understanding concepts and forming theses. A welcome update for library sleep and dream collections." - Library Journal
