It is a thoroughly cross-referenced dictionary full of entries on everything from individual gods and goddesses like "Enki" or "Ishtar", to broad topics like "afterlife" or "divination". A brief but informative introduction lays out the broad periods of Mesopotamian culture, what is even meant by the geographical and cultural term "Mesopotamia", and Gods, Demons and Symbols of Ancient Mesopotamia is an exceptional resource to anyone interested in the religion and culture of ancient Mesopotamia. A brief but informative introduction lays out the broad periods of Mesopotamian culture, what is even meant by the geographical and cultural term "Mesopotamia", and which people constituted Mesopotamians at a given time. Most terms and names are rendered in Sumerian and Akkadian. I found this slender volume in the overstuffed shelves of Brattle Book Shop a fabulous used bookstore in downtown Boston and consider it a gem of a find. Even though it is a dictionary with discrete, alphabetically ordered entries, I read it cover to cover and was sorry to finish it.
