This valuable collection of readings discusses the relationship between dress and identity. Selections from many disciplines present a thorough examination of subjects, such as textiles and clothing, anthropology, sociology, social psychology, and women's studies. Some writings are classic statements, others are contributions from recently published books and journals. Each of the book's five parts features an introduction that puts entries into context.
