E, the Incredibly Strange History of Ecstasy by Tim Pilcher
Book DescriptionThis is the most comprehensive and contemporary book ever written on the cultural influences of the drug that changed the world.The first book of its kind, "E, the Incredibly Strange History of Ecstasy" examines every aspect of MDMA, from its creation in a German lab just before the First World War, its use as a psychiatrist's tool in the 70s, though its rise in the gay and yuppie clubs in the 80s to its ultimate explosion on the dance scene.The book contains a unique visual catalogue of the most popular, unusual and visually stunning pills, along with illustrations (and analysis) of the dance fashions from dungarees and horns to smiley badges and day-glo. Selections of rave flyer art are also featured, and the effects of ecstasy on film, TV, books, comics and other media fully examined.With chapters covering every aspect of the subject - from the physical, emotional and psychological effects of ecstasy and the rise of key rave locations such as Goa and Ibiza to the futile attempts made by governments internationally to halt rave culture and stop MDMA use - this is the most comprehensive and contemporary book ever written on this popular yet elusive drug.
