Product description

Review

"In "Writing Women's Worlds, Bedouin women are the narrators of their own lives; they are not the subjects or objects of ideas projected by the ethnographer's imagination. . . . This will be an important work in the field of international feminist studies for some time to come. . . . An excellent effort to 'decolonize' a people in writing and to alter the usual preconceived ideas the Western reader brings to studies of Arabs and Muslim women."--"Women's Review of Books --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
