Editorial Reviews

Review

"Chosen for the 2005 Amelia Bloomer Recommended List of the American Library Association." --



"The stories are touching, personal, gritty, real, and political.... It gave me a sense of a legacy, that we have grandmas who've been building these bridges for us. It's a powerful thing to be written into being, to illuminate the hidden stories with joy." -- Clamor



"An exploration of women as musicians, their relationship to the music industry, and the way women construct their identities as girls who rock." -- Corvallis (OR) Gazette-Times



"Combines feminist analysis, history, and developmental theory to describe women's journey on the rock 'n' roll road." -- Eugene (OR) Register-Guard



"Treats female rockers with the depth and seriousness that they deserve and have all to often been denied." -- Iola (WI) Goldmine



"Manages to avoid the conflation of popular music to pop stars and instead to incorporate lesser-known musicians into the history of rock." -- Journal of Material Culture



"Sets out to find out how women develop identities as rock 'n' roll musicians. It's not a book about women and rock; rather, Girls Rock! Discusses women's relationship to rock." -- Portland Oregonian



"Carson, Lewis, and Shaw have written a book that fills a significant gap in the current discourse on women in popular music. They examine the connection between selfhood and music-making in a way that both validates and honors the unique experience of women in rock-and-roll. These girls rock!" -- Teresa Reed, author of The Holy Profane: Religion in Black Popular Music

Although it is a used book, it looks new. It is hardcover and it has no markings. I have yet to read it, but concerning the state of the item, I am very pleased with it.
