"Praise for previous editions:"[A] timely, well-researched and written analysis of popular and private life that is too often underestimated or overlooked yet which constitutes the majority of human existence in a region too often viewed from the narrow constraints of the state and its unrepresentative elites." - John Entelis"The broadening of Islamic studies (or regional studies on Islam) to include study of ordinary people, their daily lives, and popular cultures has been long overdue. [An] extremely interesting and innovative study which, in its own way, successfully challenges the pervasive misperception of the Middle East simply as a conflict-prone region." - Journal of Islamic Studies"... provides useful background reading for introductory courses to everyday history of the Middle East." - Journal of Palestine Studies"presents a grassroots look at what it is like to actually live in the Muslim Middle East... from Aghanistan and Iran to Morocco. [It] shows how religion is an important part, but not the sole part, of these people's lives." - Middle East Insight"This book is a welcome addition to the literature..." - The American Journal of Islamic Social Sciences" -
