Signs of Reincarnation provides
a systematic, inter-disciplinary examination of beliefs in as well as
evidence for reincarnation that will appeal to students of anthropology,
religious studies, philosophy, and the psychology of consciousness and

psychology or biology. The book includes an extensive bibliography and a
glossary of specialized and technical terms. « less
