Loaded with full-color illustrations, the Fashions of a Decade set provides an exciting new way for students to learn about modern history. The eight-volume set captures the wildly divergent clothing styles and trends that have played such a crucial role in defining our century. From the gaudy to the austere, from the shocking to the sublime, Fashions of a Decade chronicles the modern world's continual desire to express itself -- and to mold itself -- through fashion. What truly distinguishes this set is its exploration of these trends in the context of Western history. It looks at the dramatic world events, shifting social movements, and fascinating political and cultural movements that influenced the world of twentieth-century fashion.

The rating I placed on the book is more for the decade's fashion than for the actual book.

I am learing about this at school so I wanted to see this book but I have to put a hold in this book and wait.

Although this is supposed to be a book for children, it is good for adults as general resource, with some detail, that will help you start a more in-depth research. My problem with the author was a comment--actually two--especially since the book is meant for children. The first: "The Nazi were one of several extremist-right-wing German nationalist groups, etc." Wow, that was some news: socialists are now "right-wing"... And according to her the KKK was founded in 1915. Actually the KKK was created by Confederates in the 1860's. She should have kept her political mouth shut and write only about fashion, a subject she seems to know enough.
