From Library Journal
Based in part on responses from over 300 questionnaires, Surnames for Women encompasses historical, cultural, and legal information. The material is not scholarly, nor is the survey scientific, but they aren't meant to be. Rather the author, an independent management consultant, emphasizes the choices open to women and the implications these choices may engender. The essence of Kupper's work is that a name can be both a personal and political statement, indicative of one's autonomy, identity, and lineage. An informative and engaging account, recommended for public libraries.- Frada L. Mozenter, Univ. of North Carolina at Charlotte Lib.
