Millions of people are fascinated about their dreams and are avid readers of books about their meaning. This book explores the fascination we all have about what our dreams mean and how to analyse them.

Sigmund Freud said that dreams are a window into the subconscious. This book is not only a valuable guide to the interpretation of dreams, but also goes much further than typical dream books to include a vast array of literature, folklore and film references about dreams, proving that while dreams may be a window on the soul, they are also a lens through which we can understand society and culture as well. This thoroughly researched illustrated volume contains sections covering dreams and dreaming. Dr. Ashley's unique prose style will appeal to both scholarly and popular audiences alike.

Some of the questions The Complete Book of Dreams and What They Mean asks are:
Do we retreat in darkness from nocturnal threats remembered from primitive times?
Do we somehow get in touch with spiritual forces when we are asleep?
Precisely what is consciousness and what are the mechanisms by which various states of consciousness are achieved?
Are the symbols of dreams personal or part of humanities collective memory?
