Multiple Man is a reissue of Crabtree’s classical study of possession, multiple personality, and other dissociative states. The book deals both with normal human multiplicity and problematic forms. It is being republished at a time when the issues dealt with are every bit as relevant as when it first appeared.
“Adam Crabtree’s Multiple Man is a classic in a field still in search of its own identity. His unifying perspective, in an area characterized by multiplicity and inconsistency, is based on considerable sophistication in psychology, the history of hypnosis and trance, where he has an especially thorough grounding, and psychotherapy. Crabtree has drawn, with a nicely detailed hand, the outline of a new psychophysics: a science of the forces that make for human integrity–or fragmentation. This book is a marvelous Odyssey into the wonders and terrors of human fragmentation and coming whole again.”

“Adam Crabtree accomplishes the unusual in his groundbreaking book. He helps the reader come to grips with the fact that all is not as it seems–far from it. He explores the concepts of possession by the personalities of dead people, possession by living people, splintered off aspects of the core personality, as well as the conscious and subconscious minds, all within one individual. Crabtree’s book will greatly reward the reader. I highly recommend it!”
