The Empire of Fashion: Dressing Modern Democracy (New French Thought)
In a book full of playful irony and striking insights, the controversial social philosopher Gilles Lipovetsky draws on the history of fashion
to demonstrate that the modern cult of appearance and superficiality actually serves the common good. Focusing on clothing, bodily deportmen
t, sex roles, sexual practices, and political rhetoric as for
ms of "fashion
," Lipovetsky bounds across two thousand years of history, showing how the evolution of fashion
from an upper-class privilege into a vehicle of popular expression closely follows the rise of democratic values. Whereas Tocqueville feared that mass culture would create passive citizens incapable of political reasoning, Lipovetsky argues that today's mass-produced fashion offers many choices, which in turn enable consumers to become complex individuals within a consolidated, democratically educated society.
Superficiality fosters tolerance among different groups within a society, claims Lipovetsky. To analyze fashion's role in smoothing over social conflict, he abandons class analysis in favor of an inquiry into the symbolism of everyday life and the creation of ephemeral desire. Lipovetsky examines the malaise experienced by people who, because they can fulfill so many desires, lose their sense of identity. His conclusions raise disturbing questions about personal joy and anguish in modern democracy.

After shooting Megan in her flapper outfit, we headed outside. Near the studio there is a rusted metal wall that is on back of a local ice house. At first we didn't know which way we were heading out doors, but when she started in with this rather "curious" look, I knew we were onto something.
Dance was at the core of Renaissance social activity in France and had important connections with most major issues of the period. This finely illustrated book provides the first full account of the pivotal place and high status of dance in sixteenth-century French culture and society.
Margaret M. McGowan examines the diverse for
ms of dance in the Renaissance, contemporary attitudes toward dance, and the light this throws on moral, political, and aesthetic concerns of the time. Among the subjects she covers are: expectations of dance; style, costume, music, and social coding; court dance versus social dancing; dance and the Valois dynasty; professional dancers, virtuosos, and choreographers; burlesque; opposition to dance; and dance and the people. Nearly one hundred illustrations, many of them rare, accompany the engrossing text.
