Synopsis:

Survey of Historic Costume, 5th Edition, presents a thorough overview of Western dress from the ancient world to the trends of today. Each chapter presents social, cross-cultural, environmental, geographic, and artistic influences on clothing. With visuals, illustrated tables, and in-depth discussions, readers come to recognize recurring themes and concepts and understand the role of dress from a diverse, global perspective. This book is perfect for students, instructors, fashion industry professionals, and anyone interested in historic costume, fashion, art, and design. We are also very excited to announce that Survey of Historic Costume 5th edition by Phyllis G. Tortora and Keith Eubank will include a FREE Survey of Historic Costume Student Study Guide shrink-wrapped with all copies ordered beginning in July 2010. The Study Guide is designed to guide students through each chapter of the text and help them identify and synthesize core information. With its emphasis on the text and flexibility to be adapted to different course structures and methods, this resource is a valuable tool for instructors as well as students. For every chapter, the Study Guide includes concise Historical Snapshots to situate students in time; "At a Glance" tables summarizing of key information about dress from the time period covered by each chapter; space to take notes about major content and themes; questions to help students identify this information in the text; activities in which students must sketch or describe key styles; and further review questions. The Study Guide also provides students with a complete glossary of key terms used throughout the text.
