Joanne B. Eicher, Hazel A. Lutz, Sandra Lee Evenson


The authors elaborate on what dress is, define ethnocentrism and position dress in todays society. Using Western and non-Western examples, the book fosters an appreciation of the diversity of surface appearance through an exploration of the common purposes served by dress to protect, satisfy and communicate. The Visible Self, 2nd Edition, analyzes the act of dressing - not simply putting on clothing, but cleansing the body and adorning it.Joanne B. Eicher is the author of 'Visible Self: Global Perspectives on Dress, Culture, and Society', published 2000 under ISBN 9781563670688 and ISBN 1563670682.
