Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Originally published in 1948, Music and Women presents a radical critique of the history of music in Western culture and the ways that history has slighted or ignored the contributions of women.
Copyright 1995 Reed Business Information, Inc.

Review

This first appeared almost fifty years ago and made quite a splash in 1948: its new edition remains the only single source for cross-cultural comparisons of women's musical lives and experiences. Drinker's classical background lends to an astute probe and study of male Western musical traditions and women's need to provide independent musical communication processes. -- Midwest Book Review --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

3 of 5 people found the following review helpful By winchest@sprynet.com on October 30, 1997
Format: Paperback
What struck me first was its date (1948) and its unapologetic feminism. Drinker doesn't just ask - she DEMANDS to know what women were doing with their talents in those many 'silent' centuries. In the process she inspects the foundations of music as a social organism, its changing protocols, status, etc with a keen eye and zero respect for the canonized "tradition".
