Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0292765142, Hardcover)This title surveys the beautiful costumes of the Palestinian villages and bedouin. Covering the 19th century to the present day, the author describes the main regional styles of costume, considering them against the background of Palestinian life and culture. The emphasis throughout is on the social and symbolic significance of costume, and the final chapters analyse the language of costume in the context of the wedding. The illustrations include archive photographs from the 19th and early 20th centuries, and recent photographs of costumes as they are still made and worn.
