            This Is Your Mind On Plants: Opium-Caffeine-Mescaline

            This Is Your Mind On Plants: Opium-Caffeine-Mescaline (Trade Paperback / Paperback)

            Of all the many things humans rely on plants for, surely the most curious is our use of them to change consciousness- to stimulate, calm, or completely alter, the qualities of our mental experience. In This Is Your Mind On Plants, Michael Pollan explores three very different drug...s - opium, caffeine, and mescaline - and throws the fundamental strangeness of our thinking about them into sharp relief. Exploring and participating in the cultures that have grown up around these drugs, while consuming (or in the case of caffeine, trying not to consume) them, Pollan reckons with the powerful human attraction to psychoactive plants, and the equally powerful taboos. In a unique blend of history, science, memoir and reportage, Pollan shines a fresh light on a subject that is all too often treated reductively. In doing so, he proves that there is much more to say about these plants than simply debating their regulation, for when we take them into our bodies and let them change our minds, we are engaging with nature in one of the most profound ways we can. This ground-breaking and singular book holds up a mirror to our fundamental human needs and aspirations, the operations of our minds, and our entanglement with the natural world.

            Walkley Award-winning journalist, Sharri Markson is the Investigations Editor at The Australian and host of prime-time show Sharri on Sky News Australia. A VIRUS MORE THAN 109 MILLION INFECTIONS MORE THAN 2.7 MILLION DEATHS HOW DID IT HAPPEN? The origins of COVID-19 are shrouded ...in mystery and conspiracy theories. Some say it started in a lab when scientists fell sick after manipulating a bat-coronavirus. Others say the team was working on a bioweapon for the Chinese military. After multiple global inquiries, after economies have been decimated and millions of lives lost, we still need answers. Part-thriller, part-expose, What Really Happened in Wuhan is a ground-breaking investigation into the origins of COVID-19, the cover-ups, the conspiracies and the classified research, from Walkley Award-winning journalist Sharri Markson. It features never-before-seen primary documents exposing China's early cover-up of the virus. There are fresh interviews with whistleblower doctors in Wuhan - the eyewitness accounts dismantling what we thought we knew about when the outbreak hit. Plus, the book takes you inside the White House, with senior Trump officials revealing first-hand accounts of fiery Oval Office clashes and new stories of near-miss disasters in the Situation Room.
