On November 28, 1973, the world's social elite gathered at the Palace of Versailles for an international fashion show. By the time the curtain came down on the evening's spectacle, history had been made and the industry had been forever transformed. This is that story. Conceived as a fund-raiser for the restoration of King Louis XIV's palace, in the late fall of 1973, five top American designers faced off against five top French designers in an over-the-top runway extravaganza. An audience filled with celebrities and international jet-setters, including Princess Grace of Monaco, the Duchess of Windsor, Paloma Picasso, and Andy Warhol, were treated to an opulent performance featuring Liza Minnelli, Josephine Baker, and Rudolph Nureyev. What they saw would forever alter the history of fashion. The Americans at the Battle of Versailles– Oscar de la Renta, Bill Blass, Anne Klein, Halston, and Stephen Burrows – showed their work against the five French designers considered the best in the world – Yves Saint Laurent, Hubert de Givenchy, Pierre Cardin, Emanuel Ungaro, and Marc Bohan of Christian Dior. Plagued by in-fighting, outsized egos, shoestring budgets, and innumerable technical difficulties, the American contingent had little chance of meeting the European's exquisite and refined standards. But against all odds, the American energy and the domination by the fearless models (ten of whom, in a groundbreaking move, were African American) sent the audience reeling. By the end of the evening, the Americans had officially taken their place on the world's stage, prompting a major shift in the way race, gender, sexuality, and economics would be treated in fashion for decades to come. As the curtain came down on The Battle of Versailles, American fashion was born; no longer would the world look to Europe to determine the stylistic trends of the day, from here forward, American sensibility and taste would command the world's attention. Pulitzer-Prize winning fashion journalist Robin Givhan offers a lively and meticulously well-researched account of this unique event. The Battle of Versailles is a sharp, engaging cultural history; this intimate examination of a single moment shows us how the world of fashion as we know it came to be.

“Japan's pop culture, once believed unexportable, is now hitting the shores of other nations like a tsunami. In North America, young fans consume vast amounts of manga and anime, while academics increasingly study the entire J-pop phenomenon to understand it. One community has passion while the other has discipline, and what has been lacking is a bridge between the two. Mechademia is the bridge, and with a name like that, how can one go wrong? So why wait? Hop in your giant mobile suit and stomp down to the local real or virtual bookstore to purchase a copy right now!” —Frederik L. Schodt, author of Manga! Manga! The World of Japanese Comics Networks of Desire—the second volume in the Mechademia series, an annual forum devoted to critical and creative work on Japanese anime, manga, and the fan cultures that have coalesced around them—explores the varieties of desire that structure and influence much of contemporary anime and manga in manifestations that range from the explicitly sexual to more sublimated text and imagery. Collecting original essays by scholars, artists, and fans, Networks of Desire considers key issues at play in a Japanese society increasingly uncertain of its place in a globalized world: from idealized representations of same-sex desire in such shjo manga (girls’s comics) as The Rose of Versailles, to fan fiction inspired by the gender-switching manga Ranma ½, to desire in otaku communities. Deftly weaving together desire and discourse, Mechademia 2 illuminates the techno-carnal fantasies, animalistic consumption, political nostalgia, and existential hunger underlying the most popular and influential expressions of Japanese popular culture today.

The explosion in popularity of manga (Japanese comics) and its sister genre anime (comic films) in the western world in recent years has been nothing short of phenomenal. While many in the West still view these genres as a very modern invention rooted in a unique style of children's animation, the true origins of Japanese cartoon drawing date back almost 800 years to crude drawings on temple walls. In 1702 artist Shumboko Ono made a book out of prints of these pictures and the tradition of Toba-e, as these comics were originally known, grew over the next two centuries. Today these comics form a large proportion of the literature for the whole of Japanese society. The growth in popularity of manga in the West has been accompanied by a number of books on the subject - not merely translated manga comics but, of late, instructional guides to drawing characters. There have also been several scholarly tomes teaching the origins of the genre in Japan, but this is the first book to focus on the characters themselves, featuring 500 of the most famous from 1890 to the present day in full colour. Following a brief overview of the history of Japanese comics, the book is divided by character into chapters including male and female heroes and villains, anti-heroes, non-humanoid characters, teams, historical and literary characters. Each and every character included has a potted biography of their life in Japanese comics and the date of their first appearance, while 50 key characters such as Astro Boy, Akira, Lupin III and Pokemon are explored at length in special spotlight pages. There are also feature splashes on famous artists and series and crucial developments in the manga story. ''500 Manga Heroes and Villains' is the first book of its kind to assess the huge range of manga characters in illustrated form. Packed with colour illustrations it is an essential and accessible reference tool for first-time enthusiasts and manga historians alike. Manga has become a global phenomenon Featuring profiles of the 500 most famous manga characters Illustrated with 200 colour images Written by one of the leading experts in manga outside of Japan
