Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"A shrewd and closely-argued analysis of how dominant images of femininity and sexual difference are constructed." Modern Language Review

"Kuhn’s thinking is impressive, she is rarely dogmatic, and she is not without the occasional quiet irony." Film Quarterly

"Thoughtful, concise, and highly readable essays." Women’s Studies Review

"Polemical writing, which argues for rather than tells about ... In this book, Kuhn continually probes, looking further than individual methods permit." Screen
