Amelia Jones writes with intelligence and outstanding flair on a subject that is by no means unproblematic. Her text focuses on body art practices (NOT to be confused with the blanket term "performance art") and how they reflect both artistic and social aspects of (specifically American) culture from the 1960s to today. Jones offers theory-based analysis of such artists as Vito Acconci and Hannah Wilke, and gives extensive notes. Although her viewpoint is that of a feminist, the reader should by no means view Jones' work as "essentialist"; she cites many sources and deals with complicated art-historical issues very ably. Simply a must-read for students of art, art history, feminist theory, women's studies, etc., etc.!
