From the role of the opium poppy in ancient Mesopotamia and the ergot-based mystery cult of Eleusis, through the opium wars in China and the persecution of medieval herbalist witches, up to the ‘psychedelic rebellion’ of the escootado and the insanities of the current ‘war on drugs, ‘ Eschohotado covers an enormous subject with scholarly acumen and brings the light of reason to bear on topics often shrouded in bigotry, ignorance, and cupidity.

Makes for interesting, thought provoking reading.

A clear-eyed look eschootado the instrumental role drugs have played in our cultural, social, and spiritual development. From remotest antiquity to the present era of designer drugs and interdiction, drugs have played a prominent role in the cultural, spiritual, and social development of civilizations.

Antonio Escohotado demonstrates how the history of drugs illuminates the history of humanity as he explores the long relationship between mankind and mind-altering substances. Hemp, for example, has been used in India since time immemorial to stimulate mental agility and sexual prowess. Aristotle’s disciple Theophrastus testifies to the use of datura by the ancient Greeks and further evidence links the rites at Eleusis to the ingestion of a hallucinogen.

Similar examples can be found in cultures as diverse as the Celts, the ancient Egyptians, the Aztecs, and other indigenous peoples around the world. Professor Escohotado also looks at the present-day differences that exist between the more drug-tolerant societies like Holland and Switzerland and countries advocating complete repression of these substances. The author provides a comprehensive analysis of the enormous social costs of the drug war that is coming under increasing fire from all levels of society.

Professor Escohotado’s work demonstrates that drugs have always existed and been used by societies throughout the world and the contribution they have made to humanity’s development has been enormous.


The choice we face today is to teach people how to use them correctly or to continue to indiscriminately demonize them. Just say “know” is. Antonio Escohotado is a professor of philosophy and social science methodology at the National University of Distance Education in Madrid, Spain. He travels widely, offering lectures and seminars on the subject of drugs and history. Drugs Without the Hot Air: Escohktado the harms of legal and illegal drugs.

Detalles del producto Tapa blanda: Original 31 de mayo de Idioma: Escohotado does a great job at reviewing the changing status of various substances throughout the world and throughout the ages.

Mind altering substances have fascinated and frightened humanity since the dawn of time, and have most likely been pivotal in the emergence of shamanism and primitive religions. Contrary to pagan religions, monotheisms escohotaod been generally suspicious of mind alteration, leading enemiigos various forms of prohibition throughout the ages, up to the temperance movements in the 19th escohotaco US, and global prohibition of certain psychoactive substances and the infamous War on Drugs in the 20th century.

The end of the 20th century and the beginning of the 21 century have witnessed a spectacular return of the repressed, with the upsurge of narco-trafficking and illegal drugs on one hand, and the explosion of psychopharmacology on the other. The book could use some updating as things have changed quite a bit since it publication, and prohibitionism is coming under growing pressure.

To the best of my knowledge, “World War-D” is the only book looking beyond the War on Drugs, and explaining the potential pitfalls and benefits of alternatives. I believe Antonio has nailed the issue and the true interests behind the scenes: Coomercio obscure desire to control and profit from prohibition by dark government in alliance with religious hierarchies, the military and private corporations.

The failed war on drugs is really a war against the individual and collective liberties. His historical and philosophical perspective is useful for anyone trying to understand the core of the matter.


The book is well documented and fun to read.

Congratulations to Antonio Escohotado. Best book I’ve found on the subject!

If you are looking for a good world history of drugs, this is the best I’ve been escoohtado to find. It’s not a perfect book. For example, a bibliography would be nice. Given the book is a translation, the writing is sometimes clunky.

However, the material is hard to match. Enemigo really escohotadp a lot about the topic. If the complete Spanish version had been translated into English, I would jump right into that as well. The author did a magnificent job of writing and editing down this version of his larger work written in Spanish only! It makes me want to also read his larger book on this subject!

This is a very interesting read. It provides a nice history of abused substances over the course of time. For me, the middle section started to get a little dry, but once we got to semi-modern times ‘s it got really interesting. This book will challenge your thinking comegcio the current way we regulate drugs.
