Book News Annotation:

Cuno (history, U. of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign) and Desai (women's studies, U. of Connecticut) present a collection of 12 papers originally presented in preliminary versions at the eponymous international symposium, held in October of 2004, that focused on issues of family and gender in relation to law, especially family law, in eleven states of the Middle East and South Asia. Topics include marital relations and family law reform in Egypt; the impact of colonial state policies on gender relations in India; debates over legal pluralism versus a uniform civil code in India; institutions of religion, state, and family and women's rights in Turkey; struggles of personal status and family law in post-Baathist (American-occupied) Iraq; family, gender, and law in Jordan and Palestine; the debate on family law in Morocco; conflicting visions of women's rights in contemporary Pakistan; moral regulation in contemporary Bangladesh; nontraditional relationships among Sunni Muslim Egyptians and Emiratis; and constructions of the family and Afghan refugee women in Iran.
