Editorial Reviews


"This set surveys the impact of American social, cultural, and economic life on mainstream clothing and the fashion industry. Its chronological and thematic arrangement encourages browsing rather than quick consultation. …the encyclopedia's placement of fashion within its social and historical context will be interesting to many readers, including theater students and others doing costume research."



"This set is useful for the background information it gives on matters related to clothing and dress. . . . Recommended.

Lower-level undergraduates, two-year technical program students, and general readers."



"…this guide to American clothing will provide audiences in high school, public and academic libraries with a unique perspective on American social history."


Lawrence Looks at Books

"…very intoxicating….a perfect reference source for high school, public, and academic libraries."


Reference & User Services Quarterly

". . . another work that will be useful to a wide range of readers from public library patrons to high school students to college undergraduates. As such, it is also another one of those works that is equally suitable for circulating collections."


Against the Grain

Book Description

Fashion influences how we view other people and how we view ourselves. Find out what men, women, and children have worn in the United States since 1900 and how our cultural history has changed our clothing choices in this fascinating reference set.
