In this paper we provide an extension of the theory of descent of Ginzburg-Rallis-Soudry to the context of essentially self-dual representations, that is representations which are isomorphic to the twist of their own contragredient by some Hecke character. Our theory supplements the recent work of Asgari-Shahidi on the functorial lift from (split and quasisplit forms of) $GSpin_{2}n$ to $GL_{2}n.$
