?. . . Musical excerpts are quoted and some musical terminology is employed, yet the essays do not become so technical as to burden the non-musicological reader. Those essays which are more anthropological in outlook are similarly accessible to the non-anthropologist. Thus, these essays will appeal to a substantial audience of researchers in ethno-musicology, anthropology, and women's studies. Koskoff regards her work as an "introduction to the field of women, music, and culture," and, as such, it is an admirable contribution. The strength of the individual essays has combined with Koskoff's organizational and analytical clarity to produce a work of fine scholarship.?-Fontes Artis Musicae 36
