    Book details


Protest fashion from the Vietnam War years is widely familiar, but today few are aware that dramatic fashion and textile designs served as patriotic propaganda for the Japanese, British, and Americans during the Asia-Pacific War (1931-1945). This fabulously illustrated book presents hundreds of examples of how fashion was employed by those on all sides of the conflict to boost morale and fan patriotism.From a kimono lined with images of U.S. planes blowing up to a British scarf emblazoned with hopeful anti-rationing slogans, Wearing Propaganda documents the development of the role of fashion as propaganda first in Japan and soon thereafter in Britain and the United States. The book discusses traditional and contemporary Japanese styles and what they revealed about Japanese domestic attitudes to war, and it shows how these attitudes echoed or contrasted with British and American fashions that were virulently anti-Japanese in some instances, humorously upbeat about wartime deprivations in others. With insights into style and design, fashion history, material culture, and the social history of Japan, the United States, and Britain, this book offers unexpected riches for every reader.

'...a scholarly, and surprisingly fascinating, look at fashion and textiles as propaganda...during the Asia Pacific War.' -- The Independent, 20th January 2006'...lavish and beautiful...it is the volume's painstaking exposition of [wartime designs and patterns]...which establishes it as truly original work' -- Cynthia Rose, Crafts Beautiful, March 1 2006'[A] handsome, scholarly volume...fascinating...compelling...' -- Juliet Gardiner, History Today, June,2006
