Reminiscent of her American Women Artists: From Early Indian Times to the Present ( LJ 3/15/83) , this book is an exhaustive recounting of sculpture and some ``crafts'' made by American women artists, carefully compiled and illustrated for the general reader. Rubinstein includes virtually all pioneering women sculptors, largely basing her account on reputable secondary sources. Better still are the commentaries resulting from the author's own interviews. The stance is dogmatically feminist and the writing amateurish, but the book contains essential information. There can be no doubt that women seeking a career in the field made amazing sacrifices in their life choices as a matter of course. Necessary for most public collections.-- Mary Hamel-Schwulst, Tow son State Univ., Md.
