Feminism and Islamic Fundamentalism: The Limits of Postmodern Analysis

by Haideh Moghissi - £26.99  Zed Books (1999)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9781856495905 | ISBN 10: 1856495906

As a religion, Islam has been demonized for its gender practices like no other. This book analyses that Orientalism, with particular reference to representations of Muslim women and describes the real sexual politics of Islam. In a major feminist critique of Islamic fundamentalism, the author asks some hard questions of those who, in denouncing the racism of Western feminism, have taken up an uncritical embrace of the Islamic identity of Muslim women.
