Editorial Reviews

Johnson (art history) and Oliver (dance, women's studies; both teach at Providence College in Rhode Island) have edited a selection of readings on women working in diverse media, including dance, music, installation, photography, architecture, poetry, literature and theater. The works of Laurie Anderson, Gwendolyn Brooks, Jane Campion, Judy Chicago, Zaha Hadid, Pauline Oliveros, Yvonne Rainier, Cindy Sherman, Amy Tan, and Paula Vogel are considered for the approach each displays to issues of gender and feminism in markedly accessible writing. The contributors are academics; two are graduate students. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
