This question is the predominant focus for global analysis in the area, but its debate frequently ignores the cultural and social complexity of the Muslim world, reducing the region to a system of states and major figures. This book addresses such a failing by exploring how the everyday interactions of women, in accordance with Islamic personal ethics, can offer the world a new interpretation of peace. Drawing upon original research from different parts of the Middle East, North Africa and Asia, including Iran, Afghanistan, Egypt and Sudan, the authors offer a refreshing new look at Muslim women as peacemakers, challenging any assumptions of Islam as an inherently violent religion. Such a timely work provides a new and important perspective on the role of Muslim women in forging new pathways of peace in the contemporary world. --Provided by publisher."@en ;
