Dress and gender : making and meaning in cultural contexts ( Book )
25 editions published between 1992 and 1997 in English and held by 810 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Dress is one of the most significant markers of gender identity, yet is only rarely explored in depth. This volume addresses the relationship between gender and dress, opening up fascinating aspects by covering a great variety of ethnographic areas reaching from Asia, Europe and Africa to North and South America. The time span is equally wide-ranging and offers present-day material as well as studies based on historical data

Textiles in Indian Ocean societies by Ruth Barnes ( Book )
9 editions published between 2003 and 2012 in English and held by 223 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"This book concentrates on textiles as a major commodity, and primary indicator of status, wealth and identity in Indian Ocean regions. Lavishly illustrated, it represents invaluable, and entirely new research." "Textiles in Indian Ocean Societies considers the importance of trade, and the transformation of the meaning of objects as they move between different cultures. It also addresses issues of gender, ethnic and religious identity, and economic status. The book covers a broad geographic range from East Africa to South-East Asia, and references a number of disciplines such as anthropology, art history and history."--BOOK JACKET
