The General History of Drugs

Original title: Historia general de las drogas

The present edition of the General History of Drugs follows the author’s original plan, bringing together in one volume what had previously appeared in several different ones and fleshing out the historical approach with a phenomenological one, with an appendix that examines the main drugs now known, legal as well as illegal. Illustrated with more than 300 images, the work has been brought up to date with a revised and expanded bibliography, an exhaustive analytic epilogue, and a completely unprecedented index of references for ease of consultation.

Highlights The General History of Drugs


The General History of Drugs is a book of unprecedented precision and depth. 


Deep and precise, this is the go-go guide for the subject.

“Without a doubt, a book unique not only in Europe, but the world over, for the breadth and complexity of its approach as well as for its depth. It encompasses everything the title suggests and much more: a new phenomenology of consciousness.” Fernando Savater (El País)

“A fantastic anthology of universal history comprehended in depth, brought together in a work as precise as it is well-organized” Richard Evans Schultes (Journal of Ethnopharmacology)
