Jena, February 6, 2007 (view all comments by Jena)
As someone who knows shamingly little about religion and politics in the Middle East, I thought this book would be a good way to begin my self-education, even though it's more than a decade old. as a memoir of a journalist, it's easy reading, often fascinating and filled with vignettes and interesting people, including the King Hussein of Jordan and his queen Noor. I particularly enjoyed how the book covered most of the Middle East, and contrasted the differences of Islamic influence over international, national, and family politics. it was a very good foundation, and while I'm sure Brooks thoroughly researched everything she wrote, I'm ready to learn more.

"Review" by , "Powerful and enlightening....Brooks presents stunning vignettes of Muslim women...and carefully distinguishes misogyny and oppressive cultural traditions from what she considers the true teaching of the Koran."
"Review" by , "There has been nothing finer on the subject from a Western observer...she looks at it from the heart...mixing historical perspective with piercingly observed journalism."
"Review" by , "Avoids both the sensational and the stereotypical...insightful...a valid, entertaining account of women in the Muslim world."
