Who is Uvani? When he speaks through the mediumship of world-famous Eileen Garrett, he claims to be an Arab who died a hundred years ago in Basra. Is he? Or is he merely an active dramatization by the medium's subconscious mind? To answer that question Mrs. Garrett faced a battery of modern, universally recognized psychological tests, which were double-checked by the use of the galvanometer or 'lie detector.' Hereward Carrington subjected Mrs. Garrett to such well-known tests as the Bernreuter Personality Inventory, Page's Behavior Analysis, and Jung's stimulus word list, first in the normal state, then in the trnace state in which 'Uvani' controlled her body. Not only the answer to 'Uvani's' identity was at stake. These tests could prove once and for all the existence of life after death. The results were astounding. In every case they indicated two diverging and opposite personalities with distinctly different intellectual backgrounds! As exciting as a detective novel and just as suspenseful, this book will be hailed as a landmark in psychical research--the first really scientific evidence for the survival of the human spirit.(Publisher).
