Fashion Today is a highly illustrated survey of modern fashion. Its informative style guides the reader through an era that begins with Christian Dior's 1947 collection. Remembered as the New Look, it is a natural starting point for a book that explains the diverse trends we wear and how contemporary fashion has developed from being a rarefied field of speciality to become a product that is accessible to all. The second half of the twentieth century has witnessed a dramatic cultural shift. For the first time in history, fashion has become central to the existence of vast numbers of people of all ages and social backgrounds. For many, especially the young, it has developed into an obsession. Theme by theme, Fashion Today examines the spirit as well as the practicalities of fashion in order to illuminate the links and correspondences between clothes and other major areas of culture: commercial, social and artistic. It looks at the way fashion has created its own media, how a major shift in the power of fashion occurred in the Sixties and informs the industry today and why designers have become as important as the clothes they make. Fashion Today explains the complexity of contemporary fashion in a way that is free from jargon, making it a book that is essential reading for all those who are interested in fashion and the role it plays in modern culture.

Sean Connery's tuxedo, Ursula Andress' bikini, Oddjob's bowler hat, and Q's gadgets are just a few defining features of the 007 world examined in this text. Drawn from the fields of literary, film, music and cultural studies, the essays in this collection range from revitalized readings of Ian Fleming's spy novels to the analysis of Pussy Galore's lesbianism, Miss Monneypenny's filmic feminism and Pierce Brosnan's techno-fetishism. Together the essays not only consider the James Bond novels and films in relation to their historical, political and social contexts, from the Cold-War period onwards, but also examine the classic bond canon from an array of theoretical perspectives. What the text aims to show is that there is much more to the 007 series than cheap thrills, fast cars and beautiful women. Leach, among others, Lindner illustrates not only how the Bond character has conquered the globe, but has sustained its pre-eminence across six decades. Starting with the original books and moving through the films, the music and the marketing, this study should be of use to students of film, media, popular literature, marketing and cultural studies.

Mount Mitchell and the Black Mountains

Each year, thousands of tourists visit Mount Mitchell, the most prominent feature of North Carolina's Black Mountain range and the highest peak in the eastern United States. From Native Americans and early explorers to land speculators and conservationists, people have long been drawn to this rugged region. Timothy Silver explores the long and complicated history of the Black Mountains, drawing on both the historical record and his experience as a backpacker and fly fisherman. He chronicles the geological and environmental forces that created this intriguing landscape, then traces its history of environmental change and human intervention from the days of Indian-European contact to today. Among the many tales Silver recounts is that of Elisha Mitchell, the renowned geologist and University of North Carolina professor for whom Mount Mitchell is named, who fell to his death there in 1857. But nature's stories--of forest fires, chestnut blight, competition among plants and animals, insect invasions, and, most recently, airborne toxins and acid rain--are also part of Silver's narrative, making it the first history of the Appalachians in which the natural world gets equal time with human history. It is only by understanding the dynamic between these two forces, Silver says, that we can begin to protect the Black Mountains for future generations.
