4.0 out of 5 stars An entertaining quick reference guide to almost every drug, 7 Sep 2000
By A Customer
This review is from: Encyclopedia Of Psychoactive Substances (Paperback)
This isn't drug use manual, you won't any notes on the preparation and dosage of any of the substances in the book. However as a quick reference guide to the history and customs surrounding any number of obscure and not so obscure drugs it is invaulable. In it you will find anything from the potential of the goat fish to cause nightmares to the history of glue sniffing and an analysis of our habitiual use of caffiene.
Rudgely does't make any judgements as to the morality of drug use, instead he presents the simple facts whilst avoiding anthropological jargon. The one glaring omission is alcohol which only recieves a passing reference but the book doesn't suffer for it. Well worth a read for anyone with more than a passing interest in the subject be they parents, users or anthropolgy students.

This review is from: Encyclopedia Of Psychoactive Substances (Paperback)
The book matched the seller's description, and as such is worth the money i paid. The packaging was adequate for a book and it arrived one day ahead of time.
