In her groundbreaking new book, Moroccan sociologist Fatima Mernissi explores the ways in which people on dramatically opposing sides - feminists and defenders of democracy versus violent fundamentalists - must use the same sacred texts to prove different views.

It raises provocative questions about the possibilities for democracy and human rights in the Islamic world, and it is essential reading for anyone interested in the politics of the Middle East."@en ;
