Om boka

Dress and Ethnicity

From African-American women's headwraps to beauty pageants in Swaziland, this absorbing book explores ethnicity through the frequently noticed but less often analyzed human phenomenon of dress. The authors -- ethnographers, folklorists, and textile scholars -- present case studies from around the world to illustrate their different theoretical frameworks and assumptions. In considering how the body is modified and supplemented they discuss not only garments and accessories but also hairstyles and cosmetics.
