The lost Beatles interviews by Beatles( Book )

1 edition published in 1994 in English and held by 433 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Meet the Beatles as you've never known them before - from their earliest days in Liverpool and Hamburg, through their unparalleled reign at the top of the pops, and later, the painful aftermath of their much-publicized breakup. In this extraordinary book, Geoffrey Giuliano, the world's foremost authority on the Fab Four, has assembled a rare collection of the wild and uninhibited interviews the Beatles dared to give to an astounded press as they created tidal waves of controversy and set the tenor of the amazing sixties. To this hefty history he adds intimate conversations with Eric Clapton, Yoko Ono, Donovan, Madonna, and many others who knew and worked with the Beatles. In addition, fabled sixties guru Timothy Leary has contributed a provocative afterword. Here, for the first time, the Beatles speak on such previously taboo subjects as drugs, religion and mysticism, Beatlemania, the deep affection that bonded them and the fiery conflicts that eventually tore them apart, politics, family life, the death of Brian Epstein, the sixties revolution, fame, money, the Yoko Ono controversy, their energetic love lives, the tragic murder of John Lennon and, of course, their timeless, consciousness-expanding music. Along with thirty-two pages of never-before-seen photos, Giuliano brings a wealth of pulsingly vivid, heart-tugging memories of the group that helped define a wondrously turbulent era, the likes of which we have yet to see again. Start reading and relive the 'love, love, love.'"--Jacket
High priest by Timothy Leary( Book )

10 editions published between 1968 and 2003 in 4 languages and held by 325 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The League for Spiritual Discovery is a legally incorporated religion dedicated to the ancient sacred sequence of turning-on, tuning-in, and dropping-out. Its aim is to help recreate every man as God and every woman as Goddess. This book is the first of a four-volume biblical account of the birth, structural growth, exile, return, persecution, redemption, and flowering of the LSD religious cult. The seal of the League is a mandala--the end-less circle circumscribing a four-leaf lotus made by the double infinity sign. This interweaving of the infinite universe of mail with the infinite universe of female forms the flower, symbol of seed-life--centered in the void-eye of God

Politics of self-determination by Timothy Leary( Book )

3 editions published between 2000 and 2010 in English and held by 122 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Visionary Harvard psychologist Timothy Leary became the charismatic leader of the '60s counterculture. Remembered as a pioneer of research and experimentation with psychedelic substances, he was also an author, lecturer, political dissident, and media magnet whose wit and charm captured the world's attention. In this collection of essays from Leary's early career, he presents his concept of personal responsibility for the effects of one's behavior. According to Leary, self-determining people don't blame their parents, their race, or their society; they accept responsibility for their actions, which in turn determines the responses they get from the world. These writings had an enormous impact on the humanistic psychology movement and libertarian redefinition of the doctor-patient relationship. Ronin's new offering gives readers a fascinating glimpse into Leary's ground-breaking work in this area
