The Close-Up series is the first of its kind to give you a concise introduction to individual aspects of China and its people. Each topic is presented by experts in their fields who write with brevity and clarity for the intelligent reader.Women in Tang society enjoyed experimenting with ways to enhance their charms. Not only enthusiastically adopting fashion styles of foreigners who thronged the capital of Chang'an, they were also some of the earliest cross-dressers in history. Through a close-up look at excavated pottery figures and surviving gold and silver objects, a picture emerges of a remarkable open society in which women took an active part.
