Reviews

"A fascinating and informative history of humankind's checkered and often ambivalent relationship with psychoactive plants and drugs. From the role of the opium poppy in ancient Mesopotamia and the ergot-based mystery cult of Eleusis, through the opium wars in China and the persecution of medieval herbalist witches, up to the 'psychedelic rebellion' of the sixties and the insanities of the current 'war on drugs, ' Eschohotado covers an enormous subject with scholarly acumen and brings the light of reason to bear on topics often shrouded in bigotry, ignorance, and cupidity. Highly recommended!"--Ralph Metzner, Ph.D., author of The Unfolding Self and Green Psychology "This book examines natural substances used by different cultures to alter the mind. Makes for interesting, thought provoking reading."--American Herb Association, Vol 16:4
