The distinction between the expansionist view of "something-more" and the reductionist view of "nothing-but" continues to lie at the center of theoretical diversity in the field of hypnosis. Some theorists and practitioners have interpreted the phenomena of hypnosis as revealing manifestations of basic mental processes and structrures. Others have sought to explain the same phenomena as directly or indirectly suggested enactments and illusions.

However, some significant changes have taken place during the 30-odd years that I have followed developments in this area. Researchers and clinicians are now in closer agreement about what constitutes sound research methods and credible findings. There is a larger body of experimental and individual-difference data that a serious theory must explain. Today's major something-more models do not treat hypnotic phenomena as entirely singular, nor do the nothing-but competitors treat them as entirely ordinary. The former make systematic efforts to assimilate hypnotic phenomena into modern psychodynamic and psychostructural frameworks; the latter have enlarged their explanatory base to include subtle attributional and interpersonal processes. The field of hypnosis is becoming a testing ground for general psychological theories.

Theories of Hypnosis: Current Models and Perspectives offers neophytes and experts a scholarly and engaging overview of these contemporary developments and their historical background. The essays, written specifically for this volume by recognized experts, present and compare alternative views and provide vigorous and carefully argued critiques. Drs. Lynn and Rhue themselves have been active editors. Their personal contributions - the introductory and concluding chapters, and theoretical essay - are sure to mobilize the reader's integrative efforts. I expect this book to serve as a major reference for years to come.
