"The first and main theme of this book was always intended to be Cannabis spirituality." So write Hakim Bey and Abel Zug, who have here compiled an exhaustive literature of Cannabis's place in the Old World; that is, in ancient civilizations. As well as numerous scientific, bibliographical and historical writings, it contains an array of interviews, rants, photos, recipes, cookbooks, rituals, trip tales, poems, art, literature, lyrics, reviews, and four Cannabis glossaries. Commentaries by Baudelaire, Dumas, Ginsberg, Nietzsche, Timothy Leary, Aleister Crowley and more are also included. In short, everything you could possibly want to know about Cannabis's place in the modern and premodern world is here. 694 pages.
