Chasms of Delight John Mann BSc read online review & book description:

Timothy Leary’s famous exhortation in 1968 to ‘turn on, tune in, drop out’ has been blamed for persuading the masses to play with drugs, but the truth is that by the time of the ‘Summer of Love’ we had already been experimenting with them for thousands of years.

Now chemist John Mann has responded to the continuing fascination with psychedelic, narcotic and euphoriant substances by setting out a fascinating and colourful history of their discovery and use. This book tells the story of mind-altering drugs over the centuries, from the poets and artists who produced their work under the influence of opium to the posturing of modern politicians, the iniquities of the international drug trade and the wild excesses of the 1960s and 70s.

Previous books by John Mann include Murder, Magic and Medicine published in 1992 and The Elusive Magic Bullet published in 1999, both by Oxford University Press.
