CHOICE Review

This collection of 13 essays (7 previously published) serves as Koskoff's academic genealogy as she has engaged with the intersection of feminism, evolving concepts of gender, and music from 1976 to the present. The book is arranged chronologically and organized into eras loosely corresponding with second-wave feminism (1976-1990); multiple strands of the third wave, especially poststructuralism and post-colonialism (1990-2000); and the prominence of theories of performance-performativity and embodiment (2000-present). Koskoff (Eastman School of Music, Univ. of Rochester) focuses on her "own path through this wonderfully intricate intellectual and disciplinary maze," giving attention to the writings and ideas most influential for her ethnomusicological work. Through this process, she offers a clear summary of key ideas and pioneering books and presents illuminating descriptions and definitions of central concepts and terms. Throughout Koskoff's career, fieldwork has remained central as she has shifted "from a predominantly comparative and theoretical approach to more of a focus on culture-specific gendered musical systems." Several essays address Lubavitcher women's musical activity, an ongoing research area for Koskoff, and these are particularly revealing about transformations occurring in ethnomusicology and in Koskoff's approach. This book is valuable for its depth and fluent writing. Summing Up: Recommended. Upper-division undergraduates through faculty; professionals; general readers. --J. Michele Edwards, Macalester College, emerita
