It describes events surrounding the Six-Day War of 1967 and the October War of 1973 and the rise of a new and more violent type of religious fundamentalism. And it summarizes issues that continue to preoccupy Muslim Arabs into the late 1990s - prospects for democracy, the position of women, changing attitudes toward Israel, and the plight of intellectuals in the face of rising militancy. Rejwan, a Baghdad-born Israeli, brings to this study an intimate knowledge of modern Arabic culture on a popular level, producing a synthesis of history, politics, theology, and feminist currents from the standpoint of an insider/outsider."@en ;
