Taking a global, multicultural, social, and economic perspective, this work explores the diverse and colourful history of human attire. From prehistoric times to the age of globalization, articles cover the evolution of clothing utility, style, production, and commerce, including accessories (shoes, hats, gloves, handbags, and jewellery) for men, women, and children. Dress for different climates, occupations, recreational activities, religious observances, rites of passages, and other human needs and purposes - from hunting and warfare to sports and space exploration - are examined in depth and detail. Fashion and design trends in diverse historical periods, regions and countries, and social and ethnic groups constitute a major area of coverage, as does the evolution of materials (from animal fur to textiles to synthetic fabrics) and production methods (from sewing and weaving to industrial manufacturing and computer-aided design). Dress as a reflection of social status, intellectual and artistic trends, economic conditions, cultural exchange, and modern media marketing are recurring themes. Influential figures and institutions in fashion design, industry and manufacturing, retail sales, production technologies, and related fields are also covered.

Encyclopedia of Gender in Media

The media strongly influences our everyday notions of gender roles and our concepts of gender identity. The Encyclopedia of Gender in Media critically examines the role of the media in enabling, facilitating, or challenging the social construction of gender in our society. The work addresses a variety of entertainment and news content in print and electronic media and explores the social construction of masculinity as well as femininity. In addition to representations of gender within the media, we also analyze gender issues related to media ownership and the media workforce. Despite an abundance of textbooks, anthologies, and university press monographs on the topic of gender in media, until now no comprehensive reference work has tackled this topic of perennial interest in student research and papers. Features and benefits: 150 signed entries (each with Cross References and Further Readings) are organized in A-to-Z fashion to give students easy access to the full range of topics within gender in media. A thematic Reader's Guide in the front matter groups related entries by broad topical or thematic areas to make it easy for users to find related entries at a glance, with themes including "Discrimination & Media Effects," "Media Modes," "New Media," "Media Portrayals & Representations," "Biographies," and more. In the electronic version, the Reader's Guide combines with a detailed Index and the Cross References to provide users with robust search-and browse capacities. A Chronology in the back matter helps students put individual events into broader historical context. A Glossary provides students with concise definitions to key terms in the field. A Resource Guide to classic books, journals, and web sites (along with the Further Readings accompanying each entry) helps guide students to further resources for their research journeys. An Appendix provides users with a number of reports related to gender in media.

From Charles Frederick Worth to Nicolas Ghesquière, designers have propelled fashion from an elite craft into a cornerstone of contemporary popular culture. This brilliantly written analysis of the achievements of the 50 greatest names in international fashion explores their lives, both personal and professional, drawing on the latest academic research and on the best of fashion journalism, including the authors' own interviews with designers spanning a 30-year period. The designers' working methods and career highlights are outlined in detailed and wittily written entries that capture the spirit of their times. From Poiret and Patou to Gernreich and Galliano, the sometimes provocative selection of 50 names poses stimulating questions about the definition of a fashion designer in the modern era. A ground-breaking book, this is a definitive introduction to fashion designers that is essential reading for both students and general readers alike.

Coming Up Trumps: A Memoir

The Top 10 Sunday Times bestseller. In this characteristically trenchant memoir, the indomitable Jean Trumpington looks back on her long and remarkable life. The daughter of an officer in the Bengal Lancers and an American heiress, Jean Campbell-Harris was born into a world of considerable privilege, but the Wall Street Crash entirely wiped out her mother's fortune. At fifteen the young Jean Campbell-Harris was sent to Paris to study but two years later, with the outbreak of the Second World War, she became a land girl. However, she quickly changed direction, joining naval intelligence at Bletchley Park, where she stayed for the rest of the war. After the war she worked first in Paris and then on Madison Avenue, New York, with advertising's 'mad men'. It was here that she met her husband, the historian Alan Barker, and their marriage, in 1954, ushered in the happiest period of her life before embarking on her distinguished political career, as a Cambridge City councillor, Mayor of Cambridge and, then, in 1980, a life peer. Forthright, witty and deliciously opinionated, Coming Up Trumps is a wonderfully readable account of a life very well lived.

In den Gassen der Medina - Aufzeichnungen einer Reise

In diesen Reiseaufzeichnungen über seinen Aufenthalt in der Medina von Marrakesch gewährt uns der Autor Einblicke in das soziale und religiöse Leben ihrer Bewohner und ihre, uns vielfach fremd anmutenden, Leben- und Verhaltensweisen. Abseits romantischer Verklärungen zeichnet er ein Bild des Orients, das, neben freudigen Momenten, vom harten Alltag der einfachen Menschen und ihrem täglichen Kampf ums Überleben geprägt ist. Einfühlsam, mit Ironie und stets mit einem Augenzwinkern schildert Christian Thomas Wolff seine Beobachtungen und Begegnungen mit Marrakschis, Händlern und Reisenden. Dabei bedient er sich einer Erzählweise, die von einer wohltuenden Sachlichkeit geprägt ist - auch wenn er selbst von Geschehnissen betroffen war. Kaum merklich erlebt der Autor Veränderungen seiner Rolle in einem gefährlichen Spiel der Akteure: Vom Orientierungslosen zum Ratgeber, vom Gejagten zum Respektierten und muss doch erkennen, dass sein Aufenthalt in der Medina permanente Wachsamkeit und Aufmerksamkeit erfordert. Verständnisvoll beschreibt er das Verhalten seines Gegenübers genau, versucht zu erklären, ohne es zu bewerten oder den Protagonisten gar zu verurteilen. Zahlreiche geschichtliche Bezüge, spannende Episoden sowie poetische Passagen bereichern diese Aufzeichnungen und lassen sie zu einem wertvollen, literarischen Gesamtkunstwerk erwachsen.

Mit den berühmten fünf Geschichten aus Ferrara setzt Bassani seiner Heimatstadt und ihren Bewohnern ein liebevolles Denkmal: Es ist das kleine Glück in einer bescheidenen Ehe oder das große, unerreichbare; es ist die tiefe menschliche Zuneigung, die auch unter widrigen Umständen gedeiht und das Versagen des Bürgertums in eben jenen Zeiten, die Bassani in seinem Buch präzise zeichnet, für das er den Premio Strega erhielt.
