Rivkah Harris’s cross-cultural and multidisciplinary approach breaks new ground in assessing Mesopotamian attitudes toward youth and mature adulthood, aging and the elderly, generational conflict, gender differences in aging, relationships between men and women, women’s contributions to cultural activities, and the "ideal woman."
To uncover Mesopotamian perspectives, Harris combed through primary sources - including literature and myth, letters, economic and legal texts, and visual materials. Even such pivotal cultural influences as the Gilgamesh Epic and Enuma Elish are reinterpreted in an original manner.

"An excellent work, easy to read, and strongly based on statements from many cuneiform tablets, from the Sumerian (circa 3000 BCE) to the neo-Babylonian period (circa 539 BCE)."
"The author's comments are well grounded and informative. The topics addressed in this volume are seldom discussed in the scholarly literature, making the author's insights here even more appreciated."
"Harris has done something special. Her work is highly innovative, opening up a new field of study."
