Choice Review

Described as "a survey of women's activities in all facets of music ... [fashioned] to enable [those] in standard music courses to coordinate the material ... with the topics normally covered in undergraduate surveys," this second edition of a work first published in 1991 is almost 50 percent larger than its predecessor and reflects the burgeoning interest and scholarship in the field. The enlargement and repositioning from last to first place of a chapter on feminist aesthetics vis-a-vis music supports an emphasis on the search for ways to think of women's music differently from that of music by men. Each of the remaining 14 chapters retains its chronological place, contains enhanced information, and displays considerably refined prose. (Readers should note that some music examples have been reengraved and should be compared with those in the first edition to check minor discrepancies.) The suggestions for further reading at the end of each chapter and the general bibliography at the end of the book have been augmented. This highly recommended volume is a fine example of a second edition that is a necessary acquisition for all libraries. S. Glickman formerly, Franklin and Marshall College
