What People are Saying About This

From the Publisher

"This well-researched and fascinating volume not only demonstrates the important cultural role of psychoactive substances in ancient societies but also points the way to an emerging research field. The unveiling of the past history of drug use becomes a lesson for present-day society."—Jan G. Bruhn, founding editor, Journal of Ethnopharmacology

"Presents a broad overview of drug plants and fermented beverages by using anthropological, ethnological, archaeological, iconographic, chemical, and botanical approaches. Essential reading."—Elisa Guerra Doce, author of Drugs in Prehistory:Archaeological Evidence of the Use of Psychoactive Substances in Europe
