Acid: A New Secret History of LSD

Acid: A New Secret History of LSD Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Acid investigates the people who turned tripping into a popular recreational pastime. These people were connected to the CIA, the Weathermen, the Red Brigades and the Mafia.

Now with more than 25,000 words of new material, David Black brings hallucinogenic history back up-to-date. Acid reveals how scientists and how the CIA used acid for extensive mind control and sex experiments in their attempt to infiltrate counter-culture and radical groups. America's acid godfather was the shadowy and elusive Ron Stark. But who was he working for? And is he dead — or alive?

Synopsis:

ACID--A New Secret History of LSD shows that the CIA and the British security services played a pivotal role in making tripping on LSD a popular counterculture activity. While looking at MKULTRA and other secret testing programs, this book also explores the role of shadowy figures such as Ron Stark--one of the godfathers of the acid business in Britain and the US. Who was he, who controlled him, and what is the truth behind his suspicious 'death' in 1984? Was his death actually faked, as many suspect it was?

Synopsis:

This text explores the emergence of LSD and chronicles how the drug found favour with many psychologists, including doctors at a mental institute who believed it could be used to treat mental illness.

Synopsis:

Acid discovers the explosion of LSD culture in the psychedelic sixties from new and controversial angles. David Black investigates the CIA's mind control trials using LSD and the people who turned LSD-tripping into a popular recreational pastime, including the entrepreneurs with links to organized crime. David Black unravels an extraordinary story of double-dealing, intrigue and betrayal as the drug's proponents became over night millionaires-and officialdom turned a blind eye.
