I knew it! I knewit! She started as a German porn doll. Don't know if this book belongs in my 'guilty pleasures.' Could probably be a very useful text book on how things get marketed to the poor unsuspecting public. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0802776949, Paperback)

Since Barbie's introduction in 1959, her impact on baby boomers has been revolutionary. Far from being a toy designed by men to enslave women, she was a toy invented by women to teach women what-- for better or worse-- was expected of them. In telling Barbie's fascinating story, cultural critic and investigative journalist M. G. Lord, herself a first-generation Barbie owner, has written a provocative, zany, occasionally shocking book that will change how you look at the doll and the world.
