By Steven Taylor on August 12, 2009
Format: Paperback
This is a quite brilliant book, pulling together dreams of nuclear holocaust using sensitive, shrewd psychological observation. Hill finds patterns, but schematizes them in a way that respects rather than over-interprets the material. If you've not already discovered through personal experience, this book should demonstrate the profound significance of apocalyptic dreams, where boundaries between personal and cultural psychology become more and more fluid. If you've experience this kind of dream already, reading this book is an even more potent demonstration of the liminal nature of dreams. I found the common themes and motifs that Hill draws out of his informants' dreams to reflect with uncanny precision the threads running through my own nuclear / apocalypse dreams. Especially fascinating and important is the segue from the dream of nuclear holocaust to the dream of ecological devastation; again, something that my own dreams testify to. I always suspected I wasn't alone; this book made me sure. Hill's book makes an excellent contribution to the idea that there is some form dream world, more mercurial than this world, but a clear overlapping of our dream landscapes.
