By Yedida Kalfon Stillman

Это хорошо иллюстрированное издание, представляет собой историческое и этнографическое исследование одного важного аспекта арабской и исламской материальной культуры - одежды. Описывается развитие и трансформация платья за прошедшие 1400 лет в большей части исламского мира: на Ближнем Востоке, Северной Африке, и в средневековой исламской Испании. Платье - часть исламской системы облачений, рассматриваемой в книге в рамках контекста социальных, религиозных, эстетических и политических тенденций каждого исторического периода.
В дополнение к пяти историческим главам, три главы посвящены главным темам истории арабского костюма - кодексу платья для не-мусульман, важному социально-экономическому и политическому значению роскошных тканей и предметов почётной одежды, и, наиболее известным, но часто неправильно истолковываемым, скрывающим элементам одеяния.Образцы сканов:
