Product description

From the Back Cover

The extraordinary story of how LSD evolved from a psychiatric experience to a social and political revolution, 'Storming Heaven' is a brilliant, revelatory investigation into how the powerful hallucinogenic drug has been used and abused. From the first explorations into LSD's psychotic effects by the American establishment to the notorious 'Summer of Love', the positive role of the mind-expanding and creative properties of the drug is a debate that has been raging for over a generation, from Aldous Huxley to Allen Ginsberg, Ken Kesey to Timothy Leary and Charles Manson. 'Storming Heaven' guides us through an American Dream that was – for many who tuned in, turned on and dropped out – an epic hallucination.

"A valuable historical document."
TIMOTHY LEARY

"A story about the imagination unleashed… full of irony and anecdote."
GUARDIAN

"A fascinating book… aided by an awesome amount of research and detail."
TIME OUT

"A remarkably fluent and intelligent book."
DAVID WIDGERY, 'New Statesman & Society'

"Stevens's narrative moves along at a cracking pace… reads like a good, often funny detective yarn."
NEW SCIENTIST
