The Swiss thinker J. J. Bachofen is most often connected with his theory of matriarchy, or "mother right," but that concept is only a small part of his contribution to our understanding of cultural history. This book includes an autobiographical essay and selections from "An Essay on Ancient Mortuary Symbolism, Mother Right, " and "The Myth of Tanaquil."
