Clothing the Colony
Stephanie Coo's Clothing the Colony: 19th century Philippine Sartorial Culture, 1820-1896 is "the most comprehensive and rigorously-researched study on the forms of dress worn by almost all types and classes of inhabitants of the Philippines under Spain from 1820 to 1898. Using an interdisciplinary approach, it shows the inextricable links between these attires and the rapidly changing economic, political, religious, and social conditions of the 19th century."
