504    Includes bibliographical references and index 
520    "The stereotype of the 'gold digger' has a fascinating 
       trajectory in twentieth century America, from tales of 
       greedy chorus girls to tabloid coverage about Anna Nicole 
       Smith and her octogenarian tycoon husband, from vaudeville
       jokes to contemporary hip hop lyrics. While stories of 
       conniving women who manipulate men for money have been 
       around for centuries, the use of the specific term only 
       dates back to the 1910s, when it was first published in a 
       book by suffragette Virginia Brooks. Here, Brian Donovan 
       traces the development of the "gold digger" to reveal the 
       porous relationship between law and culture, using the 
       concept to assess the power of stereotypes that create and
       reinforce social inequality"--|cProvided by publisher
