Nine Parts of Desire: the Hidden World of Islamic Women

by Geraldine Brooks - £9.99  Penguin Books Ltd (2007)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9780141029405 | ISBN 10: 0141029404

Geraldine Brooks set out to discover the truth about women and Islam. She was granted meetings with everyone from Queen Noor of Jordan to Palestinians protesting about honour killings for adultery. Her book examines the evidence about Mohammad's wives and the continuing prevalence of genital mutilation yet never falls back on cheap cliches. Fair-minded and often revelatory, it paints a vivid picture of a little-understood world.
