Subject: ideas of reincarnation

a good friend needs to research re-incarnation, and wanted some stuff 
she could read, and maybe references of some professors she could talk 
to.  She has just started and all that she could find was some of the 
crazy websites out there, that are so keen on the "golden age" of 
Hinduism and how it has been contaminated and so on, that the 
information is quite incoherant. it seems  that it is rather difficult 
to find some thing not edged with hysteria these days it seems.  Also 
if there are good social histories or analysis of popular forms, it 
would be great, e.g has anyone written anything on the National 
Inquirer type magazines one could get at the railway stations and small 
towns that always had a re-incarnation story in it.

warm regards,

Shashwati Talukdar
