0961423471 New. No dust jacket as issued. Brand New! Support Radical Independent Pacific Northwest Booksellers! Trade paperback (US). 159 p. Audience: General/trade. A fantastic read, one of Ott's most accessible books. "A radical re-examination of the history of our western civilization, exploring the brutal suppression of ecstatic, experiential, natural religions from Age of Entheogens, by the 1600-year-old Pharmacratic Inquisition, leading up to the contemporary Entheogenic Reformation. " Followed by a dictionary-style lexicon of words used pertaining to shamanism and entheobotany; made in response to R. Gordon Wasson's call for "a vocabulary to describe all the modalities of a Divine Inebriant. " "Could there ever be a more damning indictment of the spiritual bankruptcy of our vaunted western civilization..than the fact that it has transubstantiated the sacred fruit of the Tree of Life, the veritable well-spring of all culture..into scurvy contraband..made the truth a secret..the Logos a dirty word..?.
