Product Overview

"This work of Dr. Aziza Braithwaite Bey is evidence of her life long insistence that thecontributions of ancient and global cultures be represented in every possible discoursewhere issues of human development and human contribution are discussed.First, as an internationally trained fashion designer; second, as a master of museology andcostume curating and; third as a doctor of diversity in cultural education teaching in theGraduate School of Arts and Social Sciences at Lesley University, Dr. Bey's work nowgives instructors a manual that introduces a plethora of comparative cultural material andevidence into the classroom-and into our thinking.Through well researched examples, her book carefully insists that both instructor andstudent begin to think of humanity outside of their own parochial setting. Through lessonson food, clothing and ritual, this manual purposefully underscores a deep appreciation ofworld-wide culture.In this era of globalization, it becomes particularly important that we manage to identifydistinctions, still, in ethnic form and culture-so that no modern effort toward homogeneityobscures those particular ways and means that varieties of cultures have solved similarproblems.This manual gently helps the user to create an understanding that the diverse range ofhuman genius is the greatest contribution to civilization, world-wide. In this manual Beycelebrates that genius...of humanity to demonstrate how similar problems can be solvedin acutely distinct ways while maintaining similarities of import across of the range ofpossibility. To this end Dr. Bey's work and her insistence on cultural inclusion demand bothour respect and applause."Renee Kemp-RotanContributing Editor with Paul Oliver inThe International Encyclopedia ofWorld Vernacular ArchitectureCambridge University Press, 1997
