Library Journal
In recent years, there has been considerable reexamination of prehistoric artifacts in terms of a feminist or woman-centered perspective arguing that pre-patriarchal societies were peaceful, matrifocal societies. This book continues the debate. Ashe examines a variety of themes: the belief in a golden age where harmony and peace flouirished; the belief that there was an Ancient Wisdom that has been lost, discarded, or degraded; the power of shamanism, treated in a particularly interesting chapter; and the cross-cultural regard for numbers. This well-researched book draws on the writings of mainstream archaelogy as well as those of modern goddess worshippers. Appropriate for large libraries where there is interest in prehistory, archaelogy, and goddess worship.--Gail Wood, Montgomery Coll. Lib., Germantown, Md.
