Editorial Reviews

Review

"Abu-Lughod's latest offering is an edited collection of literary criticism and historical analysis that assesses the status of theorizing about 'woman's emancipation' in the Middle East. . . . Largely historical, the collection serves as a wonderful introduction to the field."--Choice

13 of 16 people found the following review helpful By Erika Mitchell TOP 1000 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on September 13, 2004
Format: Paperback
This volume consists of a collection of essays about changing conceptions of women's roles in Egypt and Iran since the Nineteenth Century. On the whole, the articles are well researched and well written. However, rather than giving a single overall view of the subject, they tend to focus on very specific topics, such as the representation of Joan of Arc in Egyptian popular literature in the early part of the Twentieth Century or the education and family background of A'isha Taymur, a Nineteenth Century Egyptian poet. If the particular subject matter of the articles appeals to your interests, you will find the book very enjoyable. Otherwise, it's not exactly engaging reading.
