Barbie is a very inspiring icon, displaying good health, eagerness, and a can-do spirit. She is a true american, following the american dream. I only read the sample but it was most informative. From research it is saddening to read how much people hate poor barbie. This book explains why barbie has such a huge impact. Go barbie! Barbiegirl1399

    Propaganda in Pink

    While I wouldn't write 'The Barbie Chronicles' off as a total loss, I certainly wouldn't say I took anything away from it either. Nothing in this book made me think any differently or change my opinions about anything. It is basically a series of essays, some of which hail Barbie as the pinnacle of feminine pride, and some of which condemn her to burn at the stake. Personally, I found it laughable that some people could feel so strongly about such a material issue. The book is worth reading if you study womens' studies or are interested in that field of study.
