"This is the most systematic discussion of semiotics yet published. - "Choice". "A bravura performance..." - Thomas Sebeok. "Mapping a discipline as new as semiotics is more than an exercise in compilation and description. It involves substantive choices regarding the taxonomy and dimensions of the filed as a whole. N'th succeeds admirably in this formidable undertaking." - "Library Journal". "N'th's handbook is an outstanding encyclopedia that provides first-rate information on many facets of sign-related studies, research results, and applications." - "Social Sciences in General". "N'th's book is a remarkable survey of the incredibly broad field of semiotics...For those who desire a comprehensive survey of this diverse field, N'th's book is unsurpassed." - "Library Quarterly". N'th's ambitious work covers the field of semiotics from Aesthetics to Zoosemiotics. Organized in eight parts, it contains sixty-five encyclopedic articles, a consolidated bibliography of almost 3,000 titles, an index of names, and an index of terms." - COPAC.

Roland Barthes was one of the most widely influential thinkers of the 20th Century and his immensely popular and readable writings have covered topics ranging from wrestling to photography. The semiotic power of fashion and clothing were of perennial interest to Barthes and The Language of Fashion - now available in the Bloomsbury Revelations series - collects some of his most important writings on these topics. Barthes' essays here range from the history of clothing to the cultural importance of Coco Chanel, from Hippy style in Morocco to the figure of the dandy, from colour in fashion to the power of jewellery. Barthes' acute analysis and constant questioning make this book an essential read for anyone seeking to understand the cultural power of fashion.

Throughout history certain forms and styles of dress have been deemed appropriate - or more significantly, inappropriate - for people as they age. Older women in particular have long been subject to social pressure to tone down, to adopt self-effacing, covered-up styles. But increasingly there are signs of change, as older women aspire to younger, more mainstream, styles, and retailers realize the potential of the 'grey market'. Fashion and Age is the first study to systematically explore the links between clothing and age, drawing on fashion theory and cultural gerontology to examine the changing ways in which age is imagined, experienced and understood in modern culture through the medium of dress. Clothes lie between the body and its social expression, and the book explores the significance of embodiment in dress and in the cultural constitution of age. Drawing on the views of older women, journalists and fashion editors, and clothing designers and retailers, it aims to widen the agenda of fashion studies to encompass the everyday dress of the majority, shifting the debate about age away from its current preoccupation with dependency, towards a fuller account of the lived experience of age. Fashion and Age will be of great interest to students of fashion, material culture, sociology, sociology of age, history of dress and to clothing designers.
