The Politics of Ecstasy

Leary, Timothy


Soft cover

Pictorial wrappers. Cover art by Martin Sharp. Some creasing to spine, but binding still square and tight. Light shelf wear and creasing to corners. Clean and unmarked. First paperback edition. (Originally published in 1968.) *** The Politics of Ecstasy is Timothy Leary’s most provocative and influential exploration of human consciousness, a “startingly candid collection of essays in defence of the ecstasy he discovered when he ate a handful of sacred mushrooms one sunny afternoon in Cuernavaca…” It includes his 1966 Playboy interview in which he pronounces the sexual power of LSD that got him into trouble with the authorities.
