'Gender, Religion and Change offers an outstanding, original, and unified approach to understanding how Muslim, Christian, and Jewish practices and perspectives on gender and religion have intersected in the Middle East in the past two centuries and today. Comprehensive and accessible to students, scholars, and general readers alike, this book is essential reading.' Dale F. Eickelman, Dartmouth College 'With current perceptions and obsessions about the Middle East and Islam, there is a real need for books like this one, which details the changing mosaic of religious communities and gender roles in the region.' Judy Mabro, author of Veiled Half Truths: Western Travellers' Perceptions of Middle Eastern Women
