Editorial Reviews

Review

The book is a rare treat. Well researched and well written, it approaches the issue of Islamic biography from a fresh and engaging perspective.... An exciting contribution to the developing body of literature identified under the general but changing rubric of feminist.

(International Journal of Middle East Studies)

Format: Hardcover
In my experience, this is one of the few good books on the market that thouroughly examines the place that women held during the tenure of the Prophet and dispels the belief that women in Islam are merely second class citizens, as evidenced by the importance of Aisha in both political and cultural terms.
