[nice solid copy, no significant wear, remainder spray to bottom edge, gift inscription (non-authorial) on ffep; jacket a little rubbed, mild edgewear, one small closed tear and associated creasing at bottom left-hand corner of front panel]. (B&W photographs) A look at women in popular music from 1960 on, the book "is as much about culture as it is about music. In her look at the female singer from the days of the Hit Parade to the present, [the author] profiles the stars and styles of every genre from folk to funk, from bubble gum to blues. She also analyzes the cultural and political influences on their work, and their own considerable impact on modern sensibilities. What emerges is a portrait of women adored and abused, publicly placed on a pedestal, and -- too often -- privately pushed around."
