Out of It: A Cultural History of Intoxication
Stuart Walton (au). An examination of intoxicants, from the everyday substances of alcohol, caffeine, & tobacco to the illicit -- hallucinogens, opiates, & amphetamines. More than a mere cat. of intoxicants, this book is a smart, wry look at why intoxication has always been a part of the human experience -- from our earliest Stone age rituals to the practices of the ancient Greeks & Romans, right on through the Victorian era & ending with modern times -- & more significantly, why the use of intoxicants is, & will continue to be, an essential part of being human. The conclusions cut across the grain of today’s prevailing attitudes & fuel a neglected debate, ultimately establishing that intoxication is not only a fundamental human right but, in fact, a biological imperative.
