The peyote cult by Weston La Barre( Book )

88 editions published between 1938 and 2011 in 4 languages and held by 2,317 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

For half a century, readers on peyotism have devoured La Barre's fascinating original study, which began when the author, at age twenty-four, studied the rites of fifteen American Indian tribes using Lophophora williamsii, the small, spineless, carrot-shaped peyote cactus growing in the Rio Grande Valley and southward. Continuing his research from the 1930s through the 1980s, Weston L Barre reviews topics such as the Timothy Leary-Richard Alpert "experiments" with peyote and other psychotropic substances, the Carlos Castaneda phenomenon, the progress of the Native American Church toward acceptance as a religious denomination, the presumptions of the Neo-American Church, the legal ramifications of ritual drug use, and the spread of peyotism from the Southwest to other North American tribes. This new edition of La Barre's classic study includes 334 new entries of the latest of his highly valued bibliographical essays on works relating to peyote, not just in anthropology but in a variety of fields including archeology, economics, botany, chemistry, and pharmacology. The bibliography lists important contributions in popular media such as newspapers, audiotapes, and films, as well as in scholarly journals -- Back cover

Vom Umschlag: Devereux' Originalität besteht darin, dass er die Psychoanalyse für die Erkenntniskritik fruchtbar gemacht hat. Die Art und Weise, wie bestimmte Vorstellungen und Affekte im Kopf und in der Psyche des Wissenschaftlers zustande kommen, ist analysierbar geworden. (Mario Erdheim)
