From the Publisher:

Chapters are organized to follow the order in which textiles are addressed in the industry, beginning with coverage of fibers, and following with sections on yarns, fabric construction, and fabric finishes. Material includes traditional background information, an overview of the historical development of the textile industry, discussion of production processes, and major uses for each fiber, plus a review of new developments in the field. Equal attention is paid to both apparel and furnishings textiles, with the focus on helping students develop an understanding of how performance and characteristics are engineered to provide serviceable textile products.

From the Back Cover:

Textiles, ninth edition, is designed to be a comprehensive text for the introductory textiles student with emphasis on the fundamental principles of serviceability of textiles and textile production. This new edition continues its clear and logical presentation of topics with the most up-to-date information accompanied by the extensive use of visuals.

Photographs and diagrams that help students understand and learn the information remain a major part of the book. Basic fibers, yarns, fabrics, and finishes continue to be the emphasis.
