Description: In the Preface of the 5th Edition of Survey of Historic Costume, Tortora and Eubank conclude with the following: ldquo;In the history of dress at the beginning of the 21st century, costume might be compared to a constantly moving river. This river divides into many narrower channels that separate, cross, come together, and separate again, and yet that river continually moves on.rdquo; Building on the previous editions, the authors update their analysis of Western dress to 2008. Survey of Historic Costume has, from its beginnings, taken seriously the need to accompany the text with appropriate illustrations and the major change in the 5th Edition is the move to full color throughout the book to enrich the text and the concepts. Perfect for anyone interested in historic costume, fashion, textiles, drama, and design, this beautifully illustrated book is full of interesting facts and commentary. New to this Edition: -- Over 500 four-color photographs and illustrations -- Updated text to 2008 -- Additional influences from one period or civilization to another, including influences from other cultures -- Index updated and organized to be utilized as glossary with terms defined and page numbers printed in boldface -- Instructor's Guide provides sources for visuals, websites, teaching strategies and evaluation techniques -- PowerPointreg; Presentation contains interactive visual presentation with links to Internet
