This is the fourth issue of the Harvard Review, an issue dedicated to psychedelic and hallucinogenic drugs and research. Leary and Alpert's (better known as Ram Dass) essay "The Politics of Consciousness Expansion" was the product of their controversial hallucinogenic experiments and resulted in their firing from Harvard. A cornerstone text in the study of psychedelics and consciousness. Previous owner was a Harvard student at the time and insists he "dropped acid with Tim Leary." Good +. Item #2245
