Description

Why are civil authorities in so-referred to as liberal democracies affronted by public nudity and the Islamic full-face ‘veil’? Why is law and civil order so closely associated with robes, gowns, suits, wigs and uniforms? Why is law so all in favour of the ‘evident’ and the need for justice to be ‘seen’ to be done? Why do we dress and obey dress codes at all? On this, the first ever study devoted to the many deep cultural connections between dress and law, the creator addresses these questions and more. His responses float from the radical thesis that ‘law is dress and get dressed is law’.

Engaging with sources from The Epic of Gilgamesh to Shakespeare, Carlyle, Dickens and Damien Hirst, Professor Watt draws a revealing history of dress and civil order and offers challenging conclusions concerning the nature of truth and the potential of individuals to fit inside the types of civil life.
