The Chemistry of Mind-Altering DrugsDr. Perrine has recently completed The Chemistry of Mind-Altering Drugs, a discussion of the scientific, social, cultural, and religious implications of psychotropic drug activity. Go to the publisher's description of the book.

"Ich kann mein Lob zusammenfassend zum Ausdruck bringen, indem ich sage, dass ich keine andere Publikation kenne, in der die Chemie der bewusstseinsveraendernden Drogen, zusammen mit ihrer Geschichte, Pharmakologie und ihrem kulturellen Aspekt, kompetenter, umfassender, interessanter und anschaulicher dargestellt ist.  Zu einer solchen Leistung ist nur ein durch Erleuchtung begeisterter Chemiker faehig....  In diesem Sinne sende ich Ihnen meine besten Wuensche ... in beruflicher und mystischer Verbundenheit."

"You have done a beautiful job in putting together what is a completely novel contribution to the field. . . .  A superb job...in all instances an interesting text which is quite rigorous."
