Books in this provocative series seek to articulate the connections between culture
and dress which is defined here in its broadest possible sense as any modification
or supplement to the body. Interdisciplinary in approach, the series highlights the
dialogue between identity and dress, cosmetics, coiffure, and body alterations as
manifested in practices as varied as plastic surgery, tattooing, and ritual
scarification. The series aims, in particular, to analyze the meaning of dress in
relation to popular culture and gender issues and will include works grounded in
anthropology, sociology, history, art history, literature, and folklore.
