Edited by wonderful Miriam Forman-Brunell and Rebecca Hains, Princess Cultures: Mediating Girls Imaginations and Identities provides a comprehensive, nuanced and cutting edge look at the various facets, functions and incarnations of "princess culture" within contemporary girlhood. I feel extremely honoured to have a chapter included in this compilation, entitled "Rescue the Princess: The Videogame Princess as Prize, Parody, and Protagonist," which examines some of the key princesses archetypes found in video games. The book is part of Peter Lang's Mediated Youth series, edited by Sharon R. Mozzarella, and is available in most book stores, as well as from the publisher website.
