All these essayists come from the Asian-pacific region and they all address the complex social and cultural issues surrounding the general decline in women's traditional craft practices and their appropriation into commodified forms of production.T he necessity of craft is the first substantial text to deal with women's craft production in the Asian-Pacific region from the perspectives of social change and development. It considers whether commodification will continue to diminish the cultural and ritual value of women's craft practices, and also how can women develop strategies which enable them to maintain control of their practices. Includes Michelle Brown: "Aboriginal Women's Craft - Creations and Re-Creations" pp. 184 illusts #0720 (Signed by Author with drawing on prelim.)
