5 SIFF, STEPHEN. Acid Hype: American News Media And The Psychedelic Experience.
University of Illinois Press, Urbana and Chicago: 2015. s Softcover. Brand new book. 
LSD's trip from multi-colored miracle to mind-melting menace Now synonymous with Sixties counterculture, LSD actually entered the American consciousness via the mainstream. Time and Life, messengers of lumpen-American respectability, trumpeted its grand arrival in a postwar landscape scoured of alluring descriptions of drug use while lesser outlets piggybacked on their coverage with stories by turns sensationalized and glowing. Acid Hype offers the untold tale of LSD's wild journey from Brylcreem and Ivory soap to incense and peppermints. As Stephen Siff shows, the early attention lavished on the drug by the news media glorified its use in treatments for mental illness but also its status as a mystical--yet legitimate--gateway to exploring the unconscious mind. Siff's history takes readers to the center of how popular media hyped psychedelic drugs in a constantly shifting legal and social environment, producing an intricate relationship between drugs and media experience that came to define contemporary pop culture. It also traces how the breathless coverage of LSD gave way to a textbook moral panic, transforming yesterday's refined seeker of truths into an acid casualty splayed out beyond the fringe of polite society. Stephen Siff is an assistant professor of journalism at Miami University, Ohio. "This examination of the media's heightened interest in LSD in the 1950s and 1960s is an important book. Painstakingly researched, it provides a highly interesting trip through an era where it seemed all Americans were aware of the drug and many were taking it. This study unquestionably will be cited extensively by historians."--Patrick S. Washburn, Professor Emeritus, E.W. Scripps School of Journalism, Ohio University "Stimulating and enjoyable."--Matthew C. Ehrlich, author of Radio Utopia: Postwar Audio Documentary in the Public Interest "Siff does a very good job of explaining the relationship between the legal system and social environment, as well as the key players in government and society during the so-called psychedelic years in the United States. This makes Acid Hype especially valuable as a resource."--Sammye Johnson, Carlos Augustus de Lozano Chair in Journalism, Trinity University, and co-author of The Magazine from Cover to Cover Stephen Siff is an assistant professor of journalism at Miami University, Ohio.
