Seasons They Change: The Story of Acid and Psychedelic Folk: Jeanette Leech
The True Story of Acid House: Britain´s Last Youth Culture Revolution: Luke Bainbridge
One of the more unique British serial killers, John George Haigh killed simply because he wanted more. He had an exaggerated sense of entitlement, and would seek out victims who could support his lavish lifestyle. What is most abhorrent in this true crime murder story is not that he killed six people, but rather what he did with them after they were dead. Newspapers and tabloids would shout out headlines of John being a ´´vampire´´, a man with a blood lust who drank the blood of those he killed. But was he really a vampire? Or was John just a very clever man? The undoing of John Haigh came about when a missing person case quickly progressed to a homicide investigation. The police officers involved stumbled across a scene so horrific, it would stay in their minds forever. You see John had learned an interesting skill while incarcerated for fraud - how to dissolve a body in sulfuric acid. Of all the true crime serial killers, John was different because he didn´t kill out of some need to hurt people. He murdered to gain access to his victims bank accounts. A man from a deeply religious home, John grew up to want more money, the flashy cars and the fancy clothing. When he started to run out of money, he sought out his next victim to bankroll his lifestyle. A cold-hearted ruthless man with no thought or care for others, does John´s motive make classify him as one of the worst serial killers of all time? Learn about the Acid Bath Murderer and decide for yourself. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Thomas Stone. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/acx0/076412/bk_acx0_076412_sample.mp3.

Few events have had a more profound impact on the social and cultural upheavals of the Sixties than the psychedelic revolution spawned by the spread of LSD. This audiobook for the first time tells the full and astounding story - part of it hidden till now in secret Government files - of the role the mind-altering drug played in our recent turbulent history and the continuing influence it has on our time. And what a story it is, beginning with LSD’s discovery in 1943 as the most potent drug known to science until it spilled into public view some 20 years later to set the stage for one of the great ideological wars of the decade. In the intervening years the CIA had launched a massive covert research program in the hope that LSD would serve as an espionage weapon, psychiatric pioneers came to believe that acid would shed light on the perplexing problems of mental illness, and a new generation of writers and artists had given birth to the LSD sub-culture. Acid Dreams is a complete social history of the psychedelic counter-culture that burst into full view in the Sixties. With new information obtained through the Freedom of Information Act, the authors reveal how the CIA became obsessed with LSD during the Cold War, fearing the Soviets had designs on it as well. What follows is one of the more bizarre episodes in the covert history of U.S. intelligence as the search for a ´´truth drug” began to resemble a James Bond scenario in which agents spied on drug-addicted prostitutes through two-way mirrors and countless unwitting citizens received acid with sometimes tragic results. 1.

The riveting true story of a small town ravaged by industrial pollution, Toms River melds hard-hitting investigative reporting, a fascinating scientific detective story, and an unforgettable cast of characters into a sweeping narrative in the tradition of A Civil Action, The Emperor of All Maladies, and The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks. One of New Jersey’s seemingly innumerable quiet seaside towns, Toms River became the unlikely setting for a decades-long drama that culminated in 2001 with one of the largest legal settlements in the annals of toxic dumping. A town that would rather have been known for its Little League World Series champions ended up making history for an entirely different reason: a notorious cluster of childhood cancers scientifically linked to local air and water pollution. For years, large chemical companies had been using Toms River as their private dumping ground, burying tens of thousands of leaky drums in open pits and discharging billions of gallons of acid-laced wastewater into the town’s namesake river. In an astonishing feat of investigative reporting, prize-winning journalist Dan Fagin recounts the 60-year saga of rampant pollution and inadequate oversight that made Toms River a cautionary example for fast-growing industrial towns from South Jersey to South China. He tells the stories of the pioneering scientists and physicians who first identified pollutants as a cause of cancer, and brings to life the everyday heroes in Toms River who struggled for justice: a young boy whose cherubic smile belied the fast-growing tumors that had decimated his body from birth; a nurse who fought to bring the alarming incidence of childhood cancers to the attention of authorities who didn’t want to listen; and a mother whose love for her stricken child transformed her into a tenacious advocate for change. A gripping human drama rooted in a centuries-old scientific quest, Toms Rive... 1. Language: English. Narrator: Dan Woren.

In this poignant and disturbing memoir of lost innocence, coercion, survival, and healing, Dianne Lake chronicles her years with Charles Manson, revealing for the first time how she became the youngest member of his Family and offering new insights into one of the 20th century´s most notorious criminals and life as one of his ´´girls´´. At age 14, Dianne Lake - with little more than a note in her pocket from her hippie parents granting her permission to leave them - became one of ´´Charlie´s girls´´, a devoted acolyte of cult leader Charles Manson. Over the course of two years, the impressionable teenager endured manipulation, psychological control, and physical abuse as the harsh realities and looming darkness of Charles Manson´s true nature revealed itself. From Spahn ranch and the group acid trips to The Beatles´ White Album and Manson´s dangerous messiah complex, Dianne tells the riveting story of the group´s descent into madness as she lived it. Though she never participated in any of the group´s gruesome crimes and was purposely insulated from them, Dianne was arrested with the rest of the Manson Family and eventually learned enough to join the prosecution´s case against them. With the help of good Samaritans, including the cop who first arrested her and later adopted her, the courageous young woman eventually found redemption and grew up to lead an ordinary life. While much has been written about Charles Manson, this riveting account from an actual Family member is a chilling portrait that recreates in vivid detail one of the most horrifying and fascinating chapters in modern American history. 1.
