From chocolate to cocaine, glue-sniffing to giraffe liver, LSD to lettuce, this concise encyclopedia provides the first reliable, comprehensive exploration of one of the most misunderstood, widespread & ancient human activities -- the chemical quest for altered states of consciousness. Author Richard Rudgley’s curiosity, inter-disciplinary connectiveness, deadpan humor, prodigious reading, & anecdotal ease are all massively appealing. “A thorough & entertaining reference text.” "This really is a fun read . . . there are great little bits of information, such as the one about Eton schoolboys being flogged in the 17th century if they forgot to bring their tobacco pipes to school." Illustrations.
