While many books about Lilith completely ignore her Sumerian beginnings, this book does not. Pereira provides a cohesive discussion of Lilith from her beginnings through Jewish Midrashic and Qabalistic interpretations to modern times.
It is a joy to read a book about Lilith that does not treat her as a deviant force that should be exorcised, suppressed, or merely an archetype. It is apparent from reading the book that the author has had personal interaction with Lilith and that she respects the Sumerian goddess. It is hands down the best book I've read so far about Lilith.

Overall, the research in this book is very good and accurately covers the controversies and issues associated with Lilith and her history. The only reason I gave it only 4 stars is that it depends in places a bit too much on theories popular with the "Goddess movement" that wouldn't stand up to the scholarly scrutiny that is used in the rest of the book. Also, like most other books on Lilith, the author states that Lilith was once a goddess in ancient times without giving proof of this claim. Overall, however, this is a good introduction to Lilith, albeit a rather scholarly one for the general public.

There is a lot of in-print material on Lilith out there, as well as much web (mis)information. This the best all-round treatment of her available, IMHO. - Alan Humm

I haven't read this book in several years and memory fails as to the detail I should like to convey but I would like to concur with the other reviewers so far. I have a small and comprehensive collection of books about "Lilith" ranging from those of scholars to those of alternative spirituality practitioners and Feminists, etc. This one is my favorite in every way. I'm saddened that it is so expensive now and urge a reprint.
