Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Gillian G. Gaars critically acclaimed, breakthrough book, the first full history of women in rock and pop ever written, became an instant classic upon its publication in 1992. Arranged chronologically and told with impassioned detail, Shes A Rebel charts a half century of women performers from the early R and B singers of the 1950s, to the girl groups, Motown acts, folksingers, and rock chicks of the 1960s, to the punk rebels and pop divas of the 1970s, to the brash all-girl bands, rappers, and riot grrls of the 1980s and 1990s. This expanded ten-year anniversary edition features over 75 photos and includes three all-new chapters on all the major artists of the last decade as well as an insiders look at the music industry and the emerging power of women rock stars. With new preface by Yoko Ono and dozens of new profiles and interviews with performers—such as Courtney Love, L7, Bikini Kill, the Breeders, Sarah McLachlan, Ani di Franco, Sheryl Crow, Sleater Kinney, Alanis Morrisette, Lucinda Williams, Mariah Carey, Destinys Child, Lauryn Hill, Christina Aguilera, Nelly Furtado, Bjork, and many others— this book captures the amazing explosion of womens voices and talent in the music world. “[Shes A Rebel] is as thoroughly entertaining as it is researched ... Its exhaustive and exhilarating.”—Billboard

Review:

"There are interesting discussions of issues such as the difficulties that black Motown artists had while traveling in the South, as well as a humorous account of the quasi-accidental founding of Bitch: The Women's Rock Newsletter With Bite." Publishers Weekly

Review:

"[She's A Rebel] is as thoroughly entertaining as it is researched....It's exhaustive and exhilarating." Billboard

Review:

"[S]hakes us out of the pervasive attitude that women's place in rock & roll is to provide anonymous backup scenery. At last we have a lively history of our rock heroines." Naomi Wolf, author of The Beauty Myth
