About the Author:

A mother of five and grandmother of six, Anne McEvoy has told her share of children's stories over the years. A produced playwright, actress, and senior writer/editor for American Greetings, Inc., Anne resides in Cleveland, Ohio. This is her first book for children.

From School Library Journal:

Grade 9 Up-- In these two books, social phenomena in music, politics, economics, environment, technology, and art are correlated, where appropriate, with fashion influences. The 1970s includes chapters on "Black Is Beautiful," "Dressed to Clash," "Trash Culture," etc. It contains many references to British establishments and life, and primarily discusses Western styles, although a few Eastern elements are included. The 1990s volume includes "Sportswear Gets Active," "Proud To Be Me," and "Eco-Aware." The major flaw is that the book understandably includes only two years' worth of information; certainly the years 1993-1999 deserve treatment before a volume may purport to be about the entire decade. In both works, an abundance of full-color and black-and-white illustrations and photographs amplify the text with generally appropriate placement and captions. A minor annoyance is that a few captions under black-and-white pictures mention a color that is not shown in the illustration. Also, boxes of information set into the text sometimes interfere with continuity. These books are similar to the "Decade" series (Steck-Vaughn), which cover a wider breadth of social and political information on each period. More extensive coverage is available in the "Fabulous Decade" series (Time-Life). Libraries wanting to complete the set will definitely want the 1970s , but should carefully consider the limitations of the 1990s . --Lois McCulley, Wichita Falls High School, TX

Descripción Chelsea House Publishers, United States, 2007. Hardback. Estado de conservación: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. Fashions of a Decade: The 1940s traces the mobilization of clothing trends as they marched across the war-ravaged world. Women began wearing outfits featuring wide, padded shoulders, a narrow waistline, thin hips, and a skirt that fell just below the knee, much in the image of a soldier s uniform, while men sported clothing shaped like an inverted triangle from shoulder to waist. Heavy shoes provided a counterbalance for both men and women, and hats remained popular; however, scarves for women began to replace the traditional head-covering. This revised, full-color volume offers a detailed reflection on the role fashion has played throughout this time period, and is a perfect reference for those students or general readers who are interested in how history and culture has affected fashion through the years.
