Editorial Reviews

Review

"[A]nother 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

"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. . . . [T]he 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." - Booklist

"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." - Choice

"[V]ery intoxicating. . . . [A] perfect reference source for high school, public, and academic libraries." - Reference & User Services Quarterly

"[T]his 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
