Angela Dimitrakaki is a writer and researcher who is not afraid to ask challenging questions and grapple with difficult and important issues in contemporary culture. Based on extensive and probing research, her work prompts us to join her inquiring mind in investigating areas beyond the usual well-trodden paths and familiar names.' Gen Doy, Professor Emerita, Faculty of Art and Design at De Montfort University 'Dimitrakaki's study reinvigorates and tests the theoretical and moral articulation of Marxism and feminism most vividly developed in Griselda Pollock's writings of the late 1970s and early 1980s. Critically acute, persistent in its interrogations and varied in its discussions of art by women, and some men, the book combines a 'pessimism of the intellect' with an 'optimism of the will' (and good humour) that ameliorates the social and political crisis at the centre of her concerns.' Jonathan Harris, Professor of Global Art and Design Studies at Winchester School of Art, author of The New Art History: A Critical Introduction and editor of Globalization and Contemporary Art -- .
