"Full of symbols, analogies, and speculation, this entertaining, scholarly book will be accessible to general readers interested in psychology, anthropology, and the occult."--Library Journal "Dream Interpretation Ancient and Modern can be very useful for readers who have little or no understanding that dreams were interesting to well-educated scholars for thousands of years before Freud and Jung began their investigations... [T]he book is worth examination by anyone interested in the ideas of Jung or dream interpretation. Jung's comments in this work, as usual, are interesting, erudite, and extremely helpful."--Ronald Teague, PsycCRITIQUES "[An] intriguing volume... [T]his book is well researched and will be a welcome addition to Jung collections."--Choice
