By Robert Anton Wilson

Wilson takes you on a trip via esoterica, explaining why Eve within the Bible and Eris in Greek delusion have been either concerned with nefarious apples...Why attitudes towards the feminine breast correlate with struggle and peace...Why the good Goddess of the ancients went to Hell and why so much folks visit Hell in our goals occasionally...Why girl pacifists baring their breasts in entrance of the Pentagon have been unconsciously repeating an historic ritual...Why celibates have burned such a lot of "witches" ... and lots more and plenty, even more !!

Robert Anton Wilson's "Book of the Breast" used to be his fourth publication. Now published by way of New Falcon Publishing less than the indiscriminating identify of "Ishtar Rising." The variation that i'm reviewing is of the Playboy Press variation that's fairly assorted, that is why i'm making the excellence. even if the textual content is similar, during the ebook there are photos of Playboy Pin-Ups which upload to the complete pride of the publication and serves its goal in getting around the notion of the booklet. the recent Falcon variation is all sort and some non-Playboy portraits inserted. The publication however used to be nice. Wilson makes many high-quality arguments concerning the Breast and the way we should always be adoring the Breast, now not forsaking it, or locking it out of society as though it have been the satan incarnate which rose upon women's Breasts for males to gawk and lose their medical motive. all through historical past, at the least from the Judaica-Hebrew inception on all through time up until eventually concerning the 20's was once intercourse, girls and the other form of so-called deviant inspiration used to be thought of heretical. R. A. Wilson supplies an amalgum of references and quotations and places it jointly in a cohesive logical and thought-provoking demeanour, which i feel is his area of expertise. His comprehension and retension point of knowledge fascinates me and this can be another testimony to that trait of his that he makes use of so good in his writing. hugely reccomended! i might recommend, notwithstanding, that you just look for this model earlier than settling for the hot Falcon variation. even supposing I absolutely help the library of latest Falcon (as they considered one of my favourite publishers). The Playboy variation is a bit tricky to discover and you can pay a number of funds additional, yet for the adventure of it, i think it truly is worthy it.
Though this publication is released via Playboy Press, its no longer xxx or porn. photographs of topless women are incorporated to demonstrate yes issues of view.
