Riddled with misinformation, ultra-feminist Walker barely conceals her disgust for men, heterosexuality and the patriarchy itself.

Publisher's Synopsis
Alphabetically arranged entries offer a feminist perspective on mythology, anthropology, sexuality, and religion and trace major figures, myths, concepts, and symbols back to their pre-patriarchal origins.

"Walker has distilled 20 years of research into an absorbing treasure house. This is a feminist scholar's gold mine and a browser's delight."     ~L.A. Times

"Although I agree with the other critical reviews of this book in that it is unscholarly in the extreme, I encourage the reader to decide for him/herself. One needs only to check Walker's references to see her credibility evaporate. Dig into an article, check the references, look up the passage to which she refers and see if it matches up. I've found that in a majority of instances, Walker takes extreme liberty in interpreting material, takes material out of context, or blatantly invents 'facts' to support her perspective."       ~Lesa Whyte
