My frustration with this text is based on the absolutely terrible editing. The entire tome is filled from cover to cover (literally) with errors of spelling, grammar and punctuation that quite effectively undermine its otherwise brilliant scholarly approach. For example, the back cover of my paperback copy refers to Mr. Bennet's business pursuits in BC as "entheobotnaical". I could go on and on: plurals and possessives are an issue throughout, sentence structure is frequently questionable at best; while such issues may be part and parcel of the draft process they are inexcusable when included in the final print version of an academic research project.
I can only hope that when this book is released in its second, expanded edition Mr. Bennett or his publishers are willing to spend just a little effort, money and time on the final text.
I would recommend this book as compulsory reading, not only for marijuana advocates and passionados, but also for those history buffs.
Gotta say I am still chuckling as Bennett sticks it to earlier historians who had misinterpreted what Soma really was.
Bravo Chris Bennett. Best read I have had in ages.
thank you chris
