In the Sibling Society, Robert Bly turns to stories as unexpected as Jack and the Beanstalk and the Hindu tale of Ganesha to illustrate and illuminate the troubled soul of western society itself.

This book will capture the imaginations of its readers and enliven our cultural debate. The DW shows signs of wear on the edges and corners and the page edges shows light foxing. There are stamp marks on the bottom of the pages which denote it was originally a remainder book.
