BOOKS which deal with dress from any but the historical point of view are only too few; and it is therefore refreshing to meet with a new one. Dr. Flügel's “Psychology of Clothes” should be read by everyone who takes an interest in modern garb, for it contains a wealth of facts and theories bearing on its origin, its effects, and its future.

The Psychology of Clothes.

Dr. J. C. Flügel. (The International Psycho-Analytical Library, No. 18.) Pp. 257 + 17 plates. (London: The Hogarth Press, 1930.) 21s.
