Mutilating Khalid: The Symbolic Politics of Female Genital Cutting

by Charles G Steffen - £26.99  Red Sea Press (2011)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9781569023327 | ISBN 10: 1569023328

In 2006, a suburban Atlanta jury convicted Khalid Misri Adem, a 31-year-old Ethiopian immigrant, of two counts of aggravated assault and cruelty to children for allegedly circumcising his daughter when she was two years old. However, the trial against Khalid Adem was far from uncontroversial. MUTILATING KHALID explores the symbolic politics that surrounded the Adem case, showing how prosecutors, judges, reporters, politicians and activists set out to mould the public's image of Khalid Adem and to appropriate his symbolic values for their own particular purposes.
