The Good, the Bad, and the Barbie: A Doll's History and Her Impact on Us - Tanya Lee Stone An interesting examination of the history of the doll and the culture surrounding her, both supportive and reactive.

I realize she was trying to be clear to both sides, but it just came across as a bit muddled. [Nov. 2011]
