“Psychedelic Revolutionaries is not only beautifully written—it is timely. We are in the midst of a rebirth in interest in the psychedelic group of drugs with increasingly strong research evidence for their clinical benefits and a growing popular turn to daily ‘micro-dosing’ strategies. Everyone using these drugs will find this book fascinating.” David Healy, author of Pharmageddon “In the 1950s and 1960s, daring and controversial experimentation of world-wide significance was conducted in one of Canada’s poorest and least populated provinces—Saskatchewan. P.W. Barber makes an indispensable contribution to the history of psychedelic research, all the more timely given the current global resurgence in psychedelic science.” Gabor Maté, author of In the Realm of Hungry Ghosts “Psychedelic Revolutionaries encourages us to think carefully about the relationship between science and psychedelics, while reminding us of the enduring legacy of psychedelic research in our understanding of mental illness.” Erika Dyck, author of Psychedelic Psychiatry “Taking a dispassionate, scientific, inquiring—but also erudite and sensitive—approach, the author carefully explores the science behind the headlines and presents, for the first time, a detailed analysis of the work carried out.” Ben Sessa, author of The Psychedelic Renaissance “Both perceptive and accessible, this book is tough to put down.” Lucas Richert, author of Conservatism, Consumer Choice, and the Food and Drug Administration during the Reagan Era
