Read in September, 2007

Although this book was quite interesting, the research was lacking a scholarly feel. There were no footnotes or even works cited at all, just a list of "recommended reading" at the end of the book that correlated with each chapter. Made me slightly wary of anything the author was saying because lord knows where she got her "facts" from. But it was a fascinating read and hopefully more scholarly works like it will follow.

Carter Thank you for your review. I swear graduate school has ruined me because the first thing I always think is "what is your source!" And when I saw this book I wondered "who is this author and what are her qualifications." At any rate I'm sure I could just read the damn thing as an interesting piece of entertainment, lol. But thanks again for providing source info in your review. I appreciate it.
