  • Ayahausca Book (2008)
    This book presents the bibliographical state of the art of the Brazilian ayahuasca religions, Santo Daime, Barquinha, the União do Vegetal, and their multiple offshoots. Following a panoramic and historical introduction of these religious movements, it offers a general evaluation of their bibliography, seeking to identify the principal characteristics, tendencies, and perspectives on this field of study. Then, it discusses the main studies in the areas of pharmacology, psychiatry, and psychology carried out in the context of these groups, evaluating their results, contributions, and limitations. Finally, it presents a bibliography of the worldwide literature which aims to be the most exhaustive possible on the theme, including both academic literature and the writings of ‘natives.’ This publication is intended as a kind of guide for researchers in the area, and to be useful also to others interested in the subject, insofar as the past decade has seen not only a national and international expansion of the ayahuasca religions, but also a true boom in studies done about them.
