Abstract:

"Dr. Timothy Leary was a brilliant behavioral psychologist who was sacked from Harvard for his experiments with psychedelic drugs, and responded by persuading millions to "tune in, turn on and drop out." He then escaped from jail in California, fled from America with the help of terrorists, was kidnapped by revolutionaries in Africa and became entrapped by an exiled arms dealer in Switzerland. His life was, in the words of his goddaughter Winona Ryder, "flat-out epic grandeur," but there is more to Timothy Leary than sex, drugs, and adventure. His cultural influence was so deep and wide ranging that the post-modern 21st century world is profoundly shaped by his life. I Have America Surrounded is the first book to explain not only what Timothy Leary did, but why he did it."--BOOK JACKET.
