Editorial Reviews

Review

"Landau's takedown of Storyville's place in the United States's creation myth proves relevant in a country that still doesn't know how to categorize this sea-level city of intersections."--Bitch Magazine

"Landau's attention to the different ways women of color moved through and used the space created by the Storyville precinct enriches understanding of gender, sexuality, and class formations among late nineteenth- and early twentieth-century African American women."--The Journal of American History

"Well-researched and informative, Spectacular Wickedness is a welcome addition to the ever-growing canon of New Orleans cultural history books."--New Orleans Advocate

."Landau has admirably demonstrated that the red-light district's notoriety was, and continues to be, premised on the exploitation of the city's reputation for racialized sexuality." --The American Historical Review
