Modern Arabic short stories : a bilingual reader( Book )

15 editions published between 2007 and 2008 in 3 languages and held by 448 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The stories collected here are by leading authors of the short story form in the Middle East today. In addition to works by writers already well known in the West, such as Idwar al-Kharrat, Fu'ad al-Takarli and Nobel Prize winner Najib Mahfuz, the collection includes stories by key authors whose fame has hitherto been restricted to the Middle East." "This bilingual reader is ideal for students of Arabic as well as lovers of literature who wish to broaden their appreciation of the work of Middle Eastern writers. The collection features stories in the original Arabic, accompanied by an English translation and a brief author biography, as well as a discussion of context and background. Each story is followed by a glossary and discussion of problematic language points."--Jacket
Muslim women in law and society : annotated translation of al-Tāhir al-Ḥaddād's Imra ̕tunā fi 'l-sharīʻa wa 'l-mujtamaʻ, with an introduction by al-Ṭāhir Ḥaddād( Book )

19 editions published between 2007 and 2010 in English and held by 277 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book is a translation of what can arguably be called the very first Arabic feminist manual on the role of women in Muslim society by the early twentieth-century Tunisian author and reformist al-Tahir al-Haddad (Taher Haddad)." "The extensive introduction places the book in its historical context and includes an overview of the various movements and reformists who dealt with the emancipation of Muslim woman prior to al-Haddad's book. This is followed by a biography of al-Haddad and a discussion of the background and genesis of Our Woman in the Shari'a and Society. Causing quite a furore when it was released, the book remains just as topical today as it was then."--Jacket

The hidden face of Eve : women in the Arab world by Nawāl Saʻdāwī( Book )

6 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 75 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This powerful non-fiction account of the oppression of women in the Muslim world remains as shocking today as when it was first published, more than a quarter of a century ago. Nawal El Saadawi writes out of a powerful sense of the violence and injustice which permeated her society. Her experiences working as a doctor in villages around Egypt, witnessing prostitution, honour killings and sexual abuse, including female circumcision, drove her to give voice to this suffering. She goes on to explore the causes of the situation through a discussion of the historical role of Arab women in religion and literature. Saadawi argues that the veil, polygamy and legal inequality are incompatible with the essence of Islam or any human faith. The Hidden Face of Eve remains a classic of modern Arab writing
