From Library Journal:

The debate still rages regarding the role of women in music videos. Some say this largely promotional medium exploits women; others argue that it manipulates the viewing public in general. This book operates from yet another premise by examining the ways in which music videos send strong feminist messages and portray the complex challenges women face in modern society. Roberts (English, Louisiana State Univ.) has done her research. Citing sources from Angela Davis to Herbert Marcuse, she examines numerous genres and types of presentations by and about women?country, rap, and alternative, humorous and Afrocentric. Specific analyses of musical styles, lyrics, setting, and plot are offered for a fairly eclectic range?from Julie Brown to Queen Latifah to the MTV fare of Beavis and Butt-Head. Along the way Roberts scrutinizes gender issues, messages, and aesthetics. Unfortunately, the book's scholarly tone and serious approach make it more appropriate for students of feminist issues and contemporary media than for casual readers. For large circulating libraries with extensive collections on modern culture.?Carol J. Binkowski, Bloomfield,
