Dress & Ethnicity: Change Across Space & Time
Joanne B. Eicher (ed). With topics ranging from African American women’s headwraps to beauty pageants in Swaziland to naked divers & the royal wedding in Japan, this absorbing book contributes a new slant to the literature on ethnicity by focusing on the frequently noticed but less often analyzed phenomenon of dress.

In considering how the body is modified & supplemented, they discuss not only garments & accessories, but also hairstyles & cosmetics. Illus.
