'The question of why the female form has been considered appropriate, since the earliest days of Western civilisation, to personify a wide range of ideal concepts is an intriguing one that fully deserves this detailed and scholarly exploration. Marina Warner examines three very different allegorical uses of the female form: New York's Statue of Liberty, the public sculptures of central Paris and the images of Mrs Thatcher favoured by Fleet Street. The latter is one of the most brilliant analyses of the book, displaying Ms Warner's combination of wit and erudition at its most dazzling' - FINANCIAL TIMES
