Waking the Trance Fixed by Patricia A. Helvenston

 This book includes an updated reprint of the popular Desperately Seeking Trance Plants: Testing the "Three Stages of Trance" Model, as well as a number of new challenges to the model often referred to as a Neuropsychological or Shamanic Model. Some of these papers have been included in other publications such as the Cambridge Archaeological Journal, and many, including a chapter documenting the misuse of several historical ethnographic sources by some North American TST proponents, have never been published before. Taken as a whole they provide a systematic and detailed refutation of the TST model with respect to its applicability to Palaeolithic Cave Art, as well as to the rock art of Native Americans of the far western United States, and the South African San.
