Review by

Fascinating study of the Sumerian Inanna-Ishtar myth and her descent into the underworld to Ereshkigal, her dark 'sister.' The author present a journey of feminine initiation. Some discussion of feminist theory, which will likely be more interesting to the therapist than the lay reader. For a writer like me, there is much inspiring symbolism. A slim volume, and somewhat academic, but surprisingly readable for all that.
