Highlights include judiciously selected illustrations, a superb, up-to-date bibliography, and a remarkably concise, informative chronological table of Greek and Etruscan dress. * Library Journal *
A fine introduction to a very complex area which has received too little attention in the past. The material is rich and varied; the argument is learned, intricate, and wide ranging... This is a major work of scholarship, and well deserves a place among the indispensable works in English on Etruscan topics. * Archaeological News *
This is still the only book on its subject... Bonfante's encyclopedic knowledge and enthusiasms make the Etruscans accessible to anyone who wants to find out what they were like. -- David Ridgway * Times Higher Education Supplement *
Essential for any teacher or student interested in the Etruscans. For students, moreover, it serves as a model on how to 'read' archaeological finds of fabric and representations of garments in order to elicit valuable insights into Etruscan culture. -- Judith Lynn Sebesta * New England Classical Journal *
Bonfante's new bibliography is useful and shows clearly that new generations of scholars are active in the field of textile and dress studies. -- L. B. van der Meer * BABesch *
