Encyclopedia of Psychoactive Substances
Richard Rudgley (au)
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."
