Description
 
Robert C. Fuller. From Native Americansí use of tobacco for solemnizing oaths, to the spread of New Age religious beliefs in Haight-Ashbury coffeehouses, drugs have been intimately associated with American spirituality. Here Fuller presents an important dimension of American religious history -- the use of mind-altering substances as an aid to spirituality. He illustrates how such substances as peyote, jimson weed, hallucinogenic mushrooms, LSD, marijuana, wine, & coffee have stimulated ecstatic revelations of spiritual truth & strengthened the social bonds that sustain communities of faith. Fuller also sheds light on the controversial legal, ethical, & spiritual controversies that surround drug use in the contemporary U.S.
