Goddesses often are labeled as one-dimensional forces of nature or fertility. In examining a number of goddesses whose primary role is sovereignty, this volume reveals the rich diversity of goddess traditions. Drawn from a variety of cultural and historical settings, the goddesses describedhere include Inanna of ancient Sumer; Oshun of Nigeria; and Cihuacoatl of pre-historical America.
Elisabeth Benard is at University of Puget Sound.
