"This monograph is an effort to explain, as best I can, why as a people, as a government, we in the United States
did not follow the road of the Shamans, or for that matter of pre-1875 Americans, or conclude, as Andrew Weil and Norman Taylor have,
that altered states are important to mental health."--from the Foreward.
Dr. Bearman's book will soon be marketed through amazon.com or other large online vendor.
