The Dream in Primitive Cultures: By Jackson Steward Lincoln, with an Introduction by Professor C. G. Seligman. (The Cresset Press, London, 1935. Pp. 359. Price 18 s. net.)

Review by:
E. J.

This is a very valuable psycho-analytic study of the part played by dreams in primitive cultures and also of the dreams of present-day primitive peoples. Professor Seligman, in his Preface, states that the author has been psycho-analysed and has had the advantage of both anthropological and psychological training.

The first part of the book is an interesting historical review of dream interpretation. The second part, the most important part of the book, deals with the structure and function of dreams in primitive cultures, the forms of primitive dreams, and the characteristic complexes thereby revealed. Part III is a personal contribution of material gathered by the author among American Indians.

The book will rank as an original and solid contribution to psycho-analytical literature.
