About the Author

"The information is highly researched, referenced, and footnoted, but presented as a series of stories that make the topic more engaging. November/December 2010"

* AATCC Review *

"Norris succeeds in opening up for scholarly discussion an important new area of textile and South Asian studies, and produces a text that will be enjoyed across disciplines by students and scholars interested in global practices of recycling and the circulation of material culture."

* Cultural Analysis *

"Throughout the book, the writing remains clear and accessible, full of textured descriptions which seem to recreate the streets of Delhi. It is sure to inform specialists in the anthropology of consumption and globalisation, but remains accessible to all readers interested in a profound understanding of the recycled clothing trade in India."
