    About The Book

    Reflects a new understanding of modernism by following the fortunes of a single item of fashion.

    When Fred Miller Robinson tugs the bowler from the closet in The Man in the Bowler Hat: His History and Iconography, a wealth of cultural and social baggage comes tumbling out after it. — Esquire

    Entertaining and enlightening… A scholarly, thoughtful, and well-documented cultural critique. — Journal of Popular Culture

    A hundred years of Western culture pulled out of a bowler hat — it’s quite a trick, and Robinson accomplishes it with considerable flourish. — Roger Shattuck, Boston University

    An attempt to penetrate the bowler’s significance in art, literature, and life… [Robinson] has ferreted out plenty of curious and varied information, he has some nice observations of detail, and he offers a good deal to enlighten and amuse. — New Yorker

    A witty, well-written, scrupulously researched book that is a wonderful fusion of genres: social history, cultural history, and something that falls between belles lettres and fiction. — Dore Ashton, The Cooper Union for the Advancement of Science and Art

    Originally published in 1993.
