Overview

This book is the third in a series of anthropological studies which analyze ghosts and haunting phenomena in their cultural context. A history of visitations to the Gettysburg landscape is linked to the presence or absence of anomalous sensory manifestations. The preliminary analysis of the data suggests that the hauntings at Gettysburg may be a product of sociocultural factors, in part related to the growth of heritage tourism, rather than any ghostly manifestations by civil war soldiers. Since this is a preliminary analysis, a research design is proposed to further excavate the Gettysburg landscape. This approach is based on the use of ethnographic context, spatial symmetry, cultural relativity, and performance-based investigative practices. The author proposes that through this methodology, a controlled excavation of the landscape can be made, thus unearthing a more scientific analysis and evaluation of Gettysburg as a haunted cultural place.

    Nothing but self-indulgence

    This book is not worth reading. The author is so wrapped up in critizing others and claiming that the possibility of paranormal is "hype" without adequately disproving it. Her continued use of her "well-endowed" vocabulary is not only boring, but obnoxious as well. The only true intended audience here is the author herself. Don't waste your time nor money on this one.
