The Politics of Psychopharmacology

Front Cover
Ronin Publishing, Jun 15, 2009 - Body, Mind & Spirit - 120 pages
In this brief, lively book of reminiscences, the man Allen Ginsberg called “a hero of American consciousness” describes his transformation from bohemian professor to avatar of the new age. In his typically wry, provocative style, Timothy Leary gives firsthand accounts of his interrogation before Congress, Robert F. Kennedy’s LSD use, his own flamboyant campaign for governor of California, and much more.
