Book News Annotation:

Chronologically arranged chapters each begin with a summary of historical developments, which is followed by discussion of sociocultural, artistic, political, economic, and/or technological developments relevant to costume in the period under study, and then by detailed presentation of the specifics of costume for men, women, and children. Abundantly illustrated in color and b&w. Previous editions were published in 1989 and 1994.
