Edited By Roces, Mina and Edwards, Louise
This book explores the ways in which dress has been influential in the political agendas and self-representations of politicians in a variety of regimes from democratic to authoritarian. Arguing that dress is part of 'hard core' politics, it shows how dress has been crucial to the constructions of nationhood and national identities in both Asia and the Americas. Since dress has been a marker of identity and status, chapters engage with the gendering of the politics of dress, discussing how women have become bearers and wearers of 'national tradition' and how men and women's dress reflect their political positions in the nation-state. It examines the magical power of cloth, the meanings of batik and design, the holy status of uncut cloth versus cut cloth, and the quaint combination of non-Western with Western attire. This collection of pioneering essays fills a vacuum in the largely Eurocentric field of dress studies, demanding that attention be paid to Asia and the Americas as major sites of vestimentary creativity. 276pp.

Howells, William
Three individuals left footprints in East Africa 3.7 million years ago. Walking upright on human feet, they had crossed a threshold in the long path of their evolution from vertebrates, mammals and primates to enter and dominate a new world. They were not alone. Others, related and descended in ways not entirely clear, spread out, flourished and disappeared; some became the people of today. Although we know a great deal of the story and new information is arriving ever more rapidly, there is still more to be learned about where, when and how our ancestors became us. We do know that we arrived not because we were inevitable, but by luck and happenstance along the way. And we know there were other kinds of humans who co-existed with each other and who might be here today but are not. Now updated and revised to reflect the latest findings and their implications, renowned anthropologist, author, and educator, William Howells draws together here the latest from all today's sciences to tell the fascinating stories of our evolution. 266pp.

Edited By Ostrem, Eyolf Etc.
The concepts of genre and ritual are central for the overall occupation with the relationship between the History of the Arts and the History of Christianity in Western Culture. In particular, these two concepts have important bearings for the research carried out at the Centre for the Study of the Cultural Heritage of Medieval Rituals which has been established at the Faculty of Theology at the University of Copenhagen through funding from the Danish National Research Foundation. The first of the annual conferences of the Centre was dedicated to the question of ritual and genre. The present volume was planned on the basis of this conference: a collection of 15 essays with a wide range of topics both in terms of chronology and subject matter. The individual essays have been written partly by scholars at the Centre, partly by colleagues from universities in Denmark, Norway , Sweden, Germany and the USA with which the Centre collaborates. The aims has been to publish a volume which in a facetted way sheds light on the complex relationship between the two broad and difficult terms, genre and ritual, within the cultural history of Europe.336pp.
