Hallucinations are very dramatic behavior that today is considered to be a distinguishing characteristic of a group of serious mental disorders, as is the case of schizophrenia. Despite the seemingly bizarre nature of this type of behavior, it should not be misconstrued that hallucinations hold no functionality for the person experiencing them or that they cannot be understood through different psychological or social mechanisms. This new book examines in great detail the origin of hallucinations, as well as the modern-day social stigma that goes along with this disorder. (Imprint: Nova)
