The time has come to document the history of PCP (phencyclidine) - its synthesis, early pharmacology, clinical use and disappointment. No one associated with the early development of PCP would have, in their wildest imagination, predicted that this drug would be abused to the extent it has been in the United Sates in the past few years. Hence, a reexamination of the PCP problem and the need for a current perspective. This book provides both points of view. It is the outgrowth of a workshop held in San Juan, Puerto Rico, December 13, 1979 under the auspices of the American College of Neuropsychopharmacology. However, a number of additional investigators have submitted material that was not part of that meeting and this also is incorporated in this book. All chapters cover relatively new material which attempts to summarize the progress of a very rapidly changing field.
