A study of women in Islam. The text does not pretend that the society of Islam was dominated by women but illustrates that the world from the classical period to modern times is also a woman's world. There are tales of A'isha, who joined the forces of early followers of Mohammed in the disastrous Came Battle; the fighter Umm Omara, who lost a hand in battle; the scholar of mysticism and freed slave Rabi'a al-Adawiyya; Khayzuran, the richest and most powerful woman; the poet Wallada, daughter of the Spanish Khalif. Slave dancers and "boy-girls", students, wives, and occasionally even career women, are all featured. The book also contains a collection of illustrations showing how women both represented themselves and were represented. The book interweaves the history of Islam with the role of Muslim women in traditional Islamic countries.
This is a great book. Within the SCA I research islamic women extensively and this has been a great help. It is a bit difficult to start reading, being somewhat dry, but once you find something that catches your eye, it is a gold mine
Perfect condtiton.

I find that many books on this subject are about as interesting as reading stereo insructions. This book is like reading the most engrossing novel ever. I hardly have the oppurtunity to read it because I find myself forcing it on my friends and saying "You HAVE to read this!!" They finish it in mere days and love it! This is THE book to own if you have a middle eastern SCA persona. The imagery is beautiful and the illustrations are useful. It is imformative and very easy to interperate into an SCA context. The definative work on this subject as far as Im concerned.
