This book discusses the associations between clothing and power, with a focus on Europe during the 18th, 19th, and early 20th centuries.

I did quite enjoy this book, but from the title I did not expect there to be this much of a focus on military uniform. It seems like the author enjoys the subject very much and the book is very well researched, so this is not neccessarily a bad thing, but it just isn't particularly interesting to me. For someone interested in the history of military-uniforms throughout the ages (definitely a neglected subject), this book is a great find!

I will be honest and say that I'm a bit shallow - I would have liked to have seen more pictures. There were not nearly enough pictures (for what I wanted) and the pictures provided were small, making it difficult to see the details being described. Many of the pictures were in black and white and we had to depend on the narrative to describe the vivid colours.

I didn't like this one as much as I thought I would. Oh well.
