"I am convinced that Matossian is on to a real and significant factor in history that has been missed -- or almost entirely missed -- until now. This is an important book."
-- William H. McNeill, professor of history, University of Chicago

"An outstanding contribution in a neglected aspect of toxicology and its role in human affairs."
-- Richard Evans Schultes, emeritus professor of botany, Harvard University
