"...the editors have managed to mirror the show's fine balancing act between breezy and serious... 'Sex and the City' - and this book - illustrate not only that feminism is alive and well, but that good writing by and about women is too." -Cathy Dillon, Irish Times "Finally, a respectable academic companion to a guilty pleasure. This collects 17 scholarly articles about the iconic HBO show Sex and the City and is a guaranteed page-turner for those who enjoy nothing better than a mesmerizing essay by Foucault, followed by a luxurious wallow in Vanity Fair. Both film studies professors, Akass (London Metropolitan Univ.) and McCabe (Trinity Coll., Dublin) have assembled a compilation of topical, interesting, and entertaining (for academia) writing about some of the dominant, nonviolent issues of our day. Truly, this is essential for the intellectual fashionista! Highly recommended for academic and large public libraries." -Andrea Slonosky, Library Journal "offers a range of perspectives and methodological approaches" "The strength of the collection lies in its engagement with debates key to the study of contemporary popular culture" "genuinely illuminating piece of cultural and textual analysis" "The serious attnetion to a popular media text that this collection represents might constitute an eually serious threat to the institutions which produce it."- European Journal of Cultural Studies
