Intelligent, informative and well-written,

This review is from: Out of it: A Cultural History of Intoxication (Paperback)
The author presents an extremely cogent and intelligent argument for intoxication as a basic biological human desire. He provides a balanced overview of the beneficial and not-so-beneficial effects of the various classes of drug, including alcohol, opiates, hallucinogenics and ecstasy. Very well-written and a pleasure to read.
