Book Description:

"With different approaches, this interdisciplinary collection highlights the diversity of ways by which peyote can be employed, including both the Indigenous uses held as ‘traditional' and the growing non-Indigenous practices related to New Age and neo-shamanic groups. Thus, the book shows how the multiple contemporary uses of this cactus are transversal and present challenges to geographic, ethnic, and analytical categories and definitions. The debates brought up in this volume address broad themes such as national and international drug policies, environmental sustainability, human and Indigenous rights, and ethnic and religious issues. With all this in mind, it is possible to say with no doubt that this collection constitutes an indispensible reference for those who want to know more about peyote, its history, and its multiple uses."
