But in this illustrated book, Antonia Finnane proves that vibrant fashions were a vital part of Chinese life in the late imperial era, when well-to-do men and women showed a keen awareness of what was up-to-date." "Through Finnane's research, we are able to see how the close-fitting jacket and high collar of the 1911 Revolutionary period, the skirt and jacket-blouse of the May Fourth era, and the military style popular in the Cultural Revolution led to the variegated, globalized wardrobe of today. She connects China's modernization and global visibility with changes in dress, offering a portrait of the complex, subtle, and sometimes contradictory ways the people of China have worn their nation on their backs."--Jacket." ;
