Nicolas Saunders' last book contains specially commissioned articles by independent specialists.
A toxicologist has written a comprehensive chapter about the drug's neurotoxicity
and a psychiatrist has written about ecstasy-induced psychological harm
(and how to treat it). A specialist covers the emergency care of casualties
(both first aid and intensive care) while another examines ecstasy related
An investigative journalist reveals how the alcohol lobby has supported
scare campaigns against Ecstasy, and another journalist reports how the
media has responded.
New test results of over sixty ecstasy pills are included. Each is identified by
logo, colour, shape and precise dimensions.
In addition, the book includes new personal accounts and revised material
from previous versions (E for Ecstasy, Ecstasy and the Dance Culture and
Ecstasy, Dance Trance and Transformation).
