The organization of the book is excellent. Emily Banis Stoehrer, Fisher College, USA I have always used this book. I do not think there is another that has this much detail, but introduces concepts well without overwhelming undergraduate students. Diana Saiki, Ball State University, USA The contents match precisely to what I am teaching, which is why I like this book so much. I think this book far outweighs any other book. Rhonda R. Gorman, Texas Woman's University, USA I feel the book is written with the correct amount and detail for undergraduate students of fashion history. Alexandra Thelin, Montclair State University, USA I think the design and layout is well-done and user-friendly. Catherine Amoroso Leslie, Kent State University, USA Compared to other books [Survey of Historic Costume] is more or equally comprehensive, and has better instructor Guides and student study help. I find [Survey of Historic Costume] a better tool student success than any other text I have used. Elizabeth Cole Sheehan, Lasell College, USA One of the best things is the context it provides for dress in each era-social, political, historical, etc. It's detailed and much better organized than other books I have as an option for this course. Jennifer Banning, Illinois State University, USA It took me a while to find a text that I am happy with. Once I found this one, I stopped searching.
