The beautiful photographs show why Cambodian textiles may be regarded as works of art in Western terms, but Green's scholarly text goes deep into the fabric of Cambodian life to explain the essential role that textiles and costume play in tradition, society, and religious practice. She places the evolution of the textiles into the context of significant events from the Angkorian period forward and explains weaving and decorative processes, tools, implements, and meanings from the preparation of silk to the wearing of costumes for classic and rural dance. Green is a scholar and curator based in Australia whose 2002 master's thesis at the Australian National U. looked at the origins of Cambodian textile and costume.
