9780199757336: Encyclopedia of World Dress and Fashion, v6: Volume 6: East Asia

Published in the summer of 2010 in print and online, the 10-volume Encyclopedia of World Dress and Fashion is the first comprehensive reference work to explore all aspects of dress and fashion globally - from pre-history to the present day. Arranged geographically and written by an international team of experts, the Encyclopedia will serve as the go-to source for all issues relating the art and anthropology of costume, dress, and fashion the world over for students, scholars, members of the design and fashion industries, and fashion aficionados for years to come.

The Encyclopedia of World Dress and Fashion brings together for the first time the work of over 600 renowned scholars from every part of the globe. All articles have been specially commissioned and particular effort has been made to commission articles by indigenous scholars with in-depth local knowledge.

East Asia covers an area that is home to a quarter of the world's population. This volume provides a comprehensive overview of the region, followed by separate sections on China, Korea, and Japan. The section on China covers the Han people, China's ethnic majority, as well as most of China's fifty-five minority groups. Festive dress, China's reputation for distinctive hairstyling, and a wide range of adornments linked to ancient beliefs and traditions are all covered. Overviews of Tibet, Mongolia, and Taiwan are included as well. Traditional and modern aspects of Korean dress are explored in depth, and the importance of the textile and garment industries is highlighted. Street and youth fashion, the history of the kimono, dress and masks for Noh and Kabuki performances, and the work of textile artists who are masters of traditioanl craft are all covered in the section on Japan. Historical backgrounds and accounts of ancient archaeological evidence are also provided. Accompanied by photgraphs supplying stunning pictorial evidence, East Asia offers a compelling overview of a land where age-old tradition coexists with bustling, technologcially advanced modern states.

About the Author:


Editor John E. Vollmer is an internationally recognized curator and scholar in the fields of Asian art, textiles and costumes, decorative arts, and design.

Review:


"The writing is readable for the layperson as well as the student or scholar... The inclusion of peripheral subjects illustrates hat there are many aspects of fashion and dress, and fashion and dress play a role in many aspects of human life" - Booklist


"This work is arguably the new benchmark in its field." - Library Journal


"In this age of reliance on search engines for research, the Berg taxonomy offers a refreshingly direct means of accessing the increasingly diverse range of literature on clothing and dress. This tool will aid individuals with general, specialized, and visual study needs." -Paula A. Baxter, Curator, Art & Architecture Collection, The New York Public Library


"The study of fashion (or dress) speaks to key research fields within human geography, including the body, corporeality, consumption, commodity chains and retailing. The BFL will be a key resource for researchers and graduate students in the field."-Nicky Gregson, Professor, Department of Geography, University of Sheffield


"This is a really worthwhile project. It will be useful for students at many levels of costume/dress/fashion studies. It is not intimidating and has the potential to expand and is flexible which is invaluable for a resource like this."-Valerie Cumming, Chairman, The Costume Society, and formerly Deputy Director and Chief Curator, Museum of London
