A stimulating and provocative collection of articles. Authors in Tarlo and Moors' volume provide new data about Muslim women's dress in several sites. Details highlight the tensions surrounding decisions of what to wear from both wearers' and viewers' perspectives, dispelling stereotypes about what it means to be veiled or covered. Their introduction and its bibliography alone are worth the price of the book. --Joanne B. Eicher, Editor-in-Chief, Encyclopedia of World Dress and Fashion
