Summary A Coat of Many Colors investigates Israel's first seven years as a sovereign state through the usual prism of dress. Cloths worn by Israelis in the 1950's reflected political ideologies, economic conditions, military priorities, social distinctions, and cultural preferences, and all played a part in consolidating a new national identity. Based on a wide range of textual and visual historical documents, the book covers both what Israelis wore in various circumstances and what they said and wrote about clothing and fashion. This book introduces the reader both to Israel's history during its formative years and to the rich field of dress culture. --Book Jacket.
