Gillian G. Gaar's 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, She's 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 insider's 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, SleaterKinney, Alanis Morrisette, Lucinda Williams, Mariah Carey, Destiny's Child, Lauryn Hill, Christina Aguilera, Nelly Furtado, Bjork, and many others-- this book captures the amazing explosion of women's voices and talent in the music world. "[She's A Rebel] is as thoroughly entertaining as it is researched ... It's exhaustive and exhilarating."--Billboard
