Reprint of 27 pages, with discussions, from a symposium held in San Francisco in 1967; the first edition was published by the U.S. Government Printing Office but has been out of print for many years. The opening chapters (general essays on historical background, ethnobotany, and psychedelic drug uses and abuses) are followed by groups of chapters of kawa (decoction from Piper methysticum), nutmeg, South American snuffs, ayahuasca, caapi, yagé, and fly agaric, covering native practices, chemistry of active principles, and pharmacology.
