Birth of A Psychedelic Culture

By Mitch Mignano

November 19, 2014 | Uncategorized | 0 comments

Conversations about Leary, the Harvard Experiments,
Millbrook and the Sixties
By Ram Dass and Ralph Metzner with Gary Bravo
Introduction by John Perry Barlow
240 pages, 8 x 10 inches. Illustrated with rare photos

No understanding of the history of the sixties is complete without a grasp of the work of Leary, Alpert, and Metzner, the cultural resistance to their experiments, and the way in which psychoactive drug use became a part of contemporary society. Birth of a Psychedelic Culture shines a bright light on these experiments and their cultural milieu through never before seen photographs and the personal accounts of authors Ralph Metzner and Ram Dass, who vividly recall descriptions of particular “trips” as well as conversations with luminaries such as Aldus Huxley, Charles Mingus, Allen Ginsburg, William Burroughs and others that appeared on the scene.
