504    Includes bibliographical references (pages 666-673) and 
520    "  Spanning six centuries of global design, this far-
       reaching survey is the first to offer an account of the 
       vast history of decorative arts and design produced in 
       Africa, the Americas, Asia, Europe, the Indian 
       subcontinent, and the Islamic world, from 1400 to the 
       present. Meticulously documented and lavishly illustrated,
       the volume covers interiors, furniture, textiles and dress,
       glass, graphics, metalwork, ceramics, exhibitions, product
       design, landscape and garden design, and theater and film 
       design. Divided into four chronological sections, each of 
       which is subdivided geographically, the authors elucidate 
       the evolution of style, form, materials, and techniques, 
       and address vital issues such as gender, race, patronage, 
       cultural appropriation, continuity versus innovation, and 
       high versus low culture.  Leading authorities in design 
       history and decorative arts studies present hundreds of 
       objects in their contemporary contexts, demonstrating the 
       overwhelming extent to which the applied arts have 
       enriched customs, ceremony, and daily life worldwide over 
       the past six hundred years. This ambitious, landmark 
       publication is essential reading, contributing a 
       definitive classic to the existing scholarship on design, 
       decorative arts, and material culture, while also 
       introducing these subjects to new readers in a 
       comprehensive, erudite book with widespread appeal"--
