Synopsis

World-renowned anthropologist and ethnopharmacologist, Christian Ratsch provides the latest scientific updates to this classic work on psychoactive flora by two eminent researchers. Three scientific titans join forces to completely revise the classic text on the ritual uses of psychoactive plants. They provide a fascinating testimony of these "plants of the gods," tracing their uses throughout the world and their significance in shaping culture and history. In the traditions of every culture, plants have been highly valued for their nourishing, healing and transformative properties. The most powerful of those plants, which are known to transport the human mind into other dimensions of consciousness, have always been regarded as sacred. The authors detail the uses of hallucinogens in sacred shamanic rites while providing lucid explanations of the biochemistry of these plants and the cultural prayers, songs and dances associated with them. The text is lavishly illustrated with 400 rare photographs of plants, people, ceremonies and art related to the ritual use of the world's sacred psychoactive flora.

* Numerous new and rare coloUr photographs complement the completely revised and updated text * Explores the uses of hallucinogenic plants in shamanic rituals throughout the world * Cross-referenced by plant, illness, preparation, season of collection and chemical constituents * First edition sold 33,000 copies

Plants Of The Gods is a comprehensive reference work on psychoactive botanicals. It provides a definition of plant hallucinogens and information on phytochemical research on sacred plants, geography of usage and botanical range, the chemical structures of these substances and the use of hallucinogens in medicine.

The plant species discussed include the Amanita (Fly Agaric) mushroom, Atropa (Deadly Nightshade), Yellow and Black Henbane, Mandrake, Cannabis Ergot, Datura, Iboga, Yopo beans, Ayahuasca, Yage, Brugmansia, Peyote, the San Pedro cactus, the Morning Glory plus what the authors term "the little flowers of the gods" which include the various types of Psilocybe mushroom.

This valuable reference work is an informative and detailed guide to entheogenic plants from around the globe; it includes a bibliography and index. The text is enhanced by photographs, illustrations and paintings. There's a section that lists every plant's common & botanical name, historical ethnography, context and purpose of usage, preparation and its chemical composition and effects.

Interested readers may also want to investigate Magic Mushrooms in Religion and Alchemy by Clark Heinrich, Phantastica: A Classic Survey on the Use and Abuse of Mind-Altering Plants by Louis Lewin and Cleansing the Doors of Perception: The Religious Significance of Entheogenic Plants and Chemical by Huston Smith.

Plants of the Gods is a condensed ethnobotanical encyclopedia of hallucinogenic drugs with nicely illustrated cultural/art/chemical information . This book illustrates why these psychoactive plants have been so important, nay, a necessity of primordial human consciousness and experience cause of their medicinal,teleportal, and comunicative capabilities. It even includes a beautifully annotated color-picture field guide lexicon. It begins with a history of plant hallucinogens and then explores their cremonial/ritualistic use in various cultures around the world, creating a sense of their cultural AND artistic importance in other societies that ACTUALLY RESPECT and don't abuse them. Plants of the Gods leaves you with a sense of respect for these plants when you realize that smoking pot in some basement just to break rules is like a rites of passage sacrament practiced by many tribal cultures who know the importance of this experience which we seem to have neglected and even outlawed. Thoroughly descriptive, yet easily digestible,it reads more as a quick refrence guide /bedtime story than a book-"book", but is captivating and informatively engaging at the same time.

Read this book with Terence Mckenna's Food of the Gods. They work well together. Don't be afraid of the subject. If you've read the primary literature avoid this book unless your running a "trip" mission and you want to turn people on. These two men are giants on the subject. Forget the review. Buy the book out a repect. Schultes and Hoffman were trippy before most of us were born. P.S. All that God stuff, it's importmant but it was the thrill seeker in all of us that got us here.

This book is a great resourse for people interested in ethnobotanicals. The illustrations are excellent. The reference to the cultural context in which these plants are used helps the reader understand a bit more about how these plants are used but not abused. There is one error I noted. The captions denoting the structures for iso-LSD and lysergic acid hydroxyethylamine should be interchanged.
