Writing women's worlds : Bedouin stories by Lila Abu-Lughod( Book )
31 editions published between 1992 and 2009 in English and Turkish and held by 1,510 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The author draws on anthropological and feminist insights to construct a critical ethnography of a small Awlad 'Ali Bedouin community in Egypt.

Dramas of nationhood the politics of television in Egypt by Lila Abu-Lughod( )
15 editions published between 2005 and 2008 in English and held by 1,345 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
How do people come to think of themselves as part of a nation? Dramas of Nationhood identifies a fantastic cultural form that binds together the Egyptian nation--television serials. These melodramatic programs--like soap operas but more closely tied to political and social issues than their Western counterparts--have been shown on television in Egypt for more than thirty years. In this book, Lila Abu-Lughod examines the shifting politics of these serials and the way their contents both reflect and seek to direct the changing course of Islam, gender relations, and everyday life in this Middle East

Veiled sentiments : honor and poetry in a Bedouin society by Lila Abu-Lughod( Book )
35 editions published between 1986 and 2008 in English and French and held by 1,179 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Lila Abu-Lughod lived with a community of Bedouins in the Western Desert of Egypt for nearly two years, studying gender relations and the oral lyric poetry through which women and young men express personal feelings. The poems are haunting, the evocation of emotional life vivid. But her analysis also reveals how deeply implicated poetry and sentiment are in the play of power and the maintenance of a system of social hierarchy. What begins as a puzzle about a single poetic genre becomes a reflection on the politics of sentiment and the relationship between ideology and human experience. -- Publisher description
Do Muslim women need saving? by Lila Abu-Lughod( Book )
9 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 1,073 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Frequent reports of honor killings, disfigurement, and sensational abuse have given rise to a consensus in the West, a message propagated by human rights groups and the media: Muslim women need to be rescued. The author challenges this conclusion. An anthropologist who has been writing about Arab women for thirty years, she delves into the predicaments of Muslim women today, questioning whether generalizations about Islamic culture can explain the hardships these women face and asking what motivates particular individuals and institutions to promote their rights. In recent years the author has struggled to reconcile the popular image of women victimized by Islam with the complex women she has known through her research in various communities in the Muslim world. Here, she renders that divide vivid by presenting detailed vignettes of the lives of ordinary Muslim women, and showing that the problem of gender inequality cannot be laid at the feet of religion alone. Poverty and authoritarianism, conditions not unique to the Islamic world, and produced out of global interconnections that implicate the West, are often more decisive. The standard Western vocabulary of oppression, choice, and freedom is too blunt to describe these women's lives. This work is an indictment of a mindset that has justified all manner of foreign interference, including military invasion, in the name of rescuing women from Islam, as well as a portrait of women's actual experiences, and of the contingencies with which they live. -- From publisher's website

Remaking women : feminism and modernity in the Middle East by Lila Abu-Lughod( Book )
14 editions published between 1998 and 2009 in English and Spanish and held by 847 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Contrary to popular perceptions, newly veiled women across the Middle East are just as much products and symbols of modernity as the upper- and middle-class women who courageously took off the veil almost a century ago. To make this point, these essays focus on the "woman question" in the Middle East (most particularly in Egypt and Iran), especially at the turn of the century, when gender became a highly charged nationalist issue tied up in complex ways with the West. The last two decades have witnessed an extraordinary burst of energy and richness in Middle East women's studies, and

Libyan Bedouin MT09 ( )
1 edition published in 1999 in English and held by 17 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The Libyan Bedouin are Arab people of tribal and nomadic pastoralist backgrounds who have ties to the Libyan Desert. This desert comprises the western part of the Egypt, where it is known as the Western Desert, and the eastern part of Libya. This file on the Libyan Bedouin consists of 14 documents and includes ethnographies which provide rich accounts and varying perspectives of Libyan-Bedouin culture and society. These works include Evans-Pritchard's historical and sociological analysis of the Sansusi Order, Emry's study of power in Bedouin society, Behnke's study of Bedouin political ecology, and Abu-Lughod's studies of gender and poetry. Other studies discuss sociopolitical organization and customary law. Three studies examine more recent changes in Bedouin society as a result of sedentization, intrusion of the state, and economic development
