Ishtar is the first book dedicated to providing an accessible analysis of the mythology and image of this complex goddess. The polarity of her nature is reflected in her role as goddess of sexual love and war, and has made her difficult to characterise in modern scholarship. By exploring this complexity, Ishtar offers insight into Mesopotamian culture and thought, and elucidates a goddess who transcended the limits of gender, divinity and nature. It gives an accessible introduction to the Near Eastern pantheon, while also opening a pathway for comparison with the later Near Eastern and Mediterranean deities who followed her.

In a flash, they are wrestling on the lawn, scratching and biting as the horrified guests look on. This is 1980s Iraq.

But can they control the powers they’ve unleashed?This action-packed novel lays bare the pain and passions of Iraqi women in a time of political paranoia.

Ishtar and Ereshkigal are the daughters of the Moon God Sin and sisters of the Sun God Shamash, and members of a family of deities called the Anunnaki, who arrived from the heavens to the earth many thousands of years ago. Ishtar, as Inanna, was the original goddess of love and the forerunner to all of the fertility goddesses that followed. Ereshkigal was the original ruler of the underworld and the goddess of death. As the queens of heaven and the underworld, Ishtar and Ereshkigal represent the opposing forces that allow life, death and rebirth to occur in the world.

For most of this country's history, Canadian children's literature, with the exception of such notable authors as Charles G.D. Roberts, Ernest Thompson Seton, L.M. Montgomery, and Grey Owl (Archibald Belaney), was not a 'growth industry'. British and American books were readily available andhad already achieved approval in the centres of intellect or fashion. More recently, however, with a larger and more diverse population and with the support of numerous publishers specializing in the field and a growing list of annual awards to honour excellence in both writing and illustrating,Canadian children's books have become an important part of our ongoing literary culture. Canadian authors and illustrators, from Farley Mowat and Mordecai Richler to Gordon Korman, Monica Hughes, William Kurelek, and Dennis Lee, have become among our best-known cultural exports.In Canadian Children's Books, Professors Raymond Jones and Jon Stott provide teachers, librarians, and other educators, parents and relatives, and students of children and of children's literature with a comprehensive and detailed examination of this now rich field. Each of the 133 entries onauthors and illustrators presents factual and critical information along multiple dimensions. In addition to authors and illustrators of historical and contemporary importance in the English mainstream, creators of ethnic, Aboriginal, and French-Canadian origin also are included. There arerepresentatives of regions--the North, the East, the West, and the rest between--and of all genres: retold folktales and myths, mystery, science fiction, fantasy, sports, wilderness adventure, animal epic, chapter books, picture books, poetry, stories for reluctant readers. Appendices list thewinners of the major English-Canadian children's book awards and sources for further reading.
