Weidenfeld and Nicolson
»Headscarves and Hymens« explodes the myth that we should stand back and watch while women are disempowered and abused in the name of religion. In this laceratingly honest account, Eltahawy takes aim both at attitudes in the Middle East and at the western liberals who mistake misogyny for cultural difference. Her argument is clear: unless political revolution in the Arab ... Weiterlesen

Columbia University Press
One of the largely untold stories of Orientalism is the degree to which the Middle East has been associated with »deviant« male homosexuality by scores of Western travellers, historians, writers, and artists for well over four hundred years. To illuminate why and how the Islamicate world became the locus for such fantasies and desires, Boone deploys a supple mode of ... Weiterlesen

Attitudes toward homosexuality in the pre-modern Arab-Islamic world are commonly depicted as schizophrenic. On the one hand, Arabic love poetry, biographical works, and bawdy satires suggest that homosexuality was a visible and tolerated part of Arab-Islamic elite culture before the 9th century. On the other hand, Islam supposedly considers homosexuality an abomination and prescribes severe punishment for it. This book ... Weiterlesen

Kostenloser Versand ab 20 Euro Bestellwert.
Homosexuality is still taboo in the Arab countries. While clerics denounce it as a heinous sin, newspapers, reluctant to address it directly, talk cryptically of »shameful acts« and »deviant behaviour«. Despite growing acceptance of sexual diversity in many parts of the world, attitudes in the Middle East have been hardening against it. In this absorbing account, journalist Brian Whitaker paints ...
