‘Psychedelic Tricksters: A True Secret History of LSD’ by David Black published in paperback, May 21 2020

Timothy Leary, High Priest of LSD, predicted: “‘The next war for control of this planet and beyond has to do with the control of consciousness”.
From the late-1940s onwards, the US Central Intelligence Agency secretly attempted to use psychedelic drugs for purposes of social control and psychological warfare. But in the 1960s, LSD escaped its captors as a new generation of rebellious youth on both sides of the Atlantic discovered psychedelics as means for expanding consciousness rather than controlling it.
Exploding many of the myths surrounding LSD, the CIA and the counterculture, this meticulously-researched narrative concentrates on the roles and motivations of the ‘Tricksters’ on both sides in this world-changing phenomenon.

NOTE: In February 2020 author David Black withdrew his ebook, Acid Outlaws: LSD, Counterculture and Counterrevolution, from publication, announcing, “Since publication in August 2019, I have been contacted by some of the people I write about in the book, who have pointed out shortcomings such as factual errors and misinterpretations of events. I hasten to point out that I am not being sued by anybody; on the contrary, the correspondence has yielded such a wealth of new information and insights that I have decided that the book needs to be rewritten, and published under a new title.”
