ISBN: 978087286535
San Francisco, CA: City Lights Books, 2010. First edition. Softcover. "In 1960 Timothy Leary was not yet famous- or infamous- and Allen Ginsberg was both. Leary, eager to expand his experiments at the Harvard Psilocybin Project, knew that Ginsberg held the key to bohemia's elite. Ginsberg, fresh from his first experience with hallucinogenic mushrooms in Mexico, was eager to promote the spiritual possibilities of psychedelic use. Thus, America's most conspicuous beatnik was recruited as Ambassador or Psilocybin under the auspices of an Ivy League professor, and together they launched the psychedelic revolution and turned on the hippie generation." (back cover) Per the legendary Beat publisher's announcement of the release of this important new study of a critical countercultural juncture, it is "The inside story of how Allen Ginsberg and Timothy Leary launched the psychedelic revolution together." A softcover original, as new. New. [Item #1596]
