Review

"Important, brave and necessary" (Naomi Wolf)

"Remarkable... Sex and the Citadel should be celebrated - not least for freeing voices silenced by a mixture of taboo and political repression. It provides crucial oxygen for discussions that will need more airing in the long, conflicted years ahead" (Rachel Halliburton Independent on Sunday)

"Compelling, revelatory... No one can be sure where the Arab awakening will lead now -- towards fiercer sexual controls or a slight relaxing of them. The one thing El Feki is sure of is that there will be no seismic shifts. This will be evolution, not revolution" (Jenni Russell Sunday Times (Culture))

"Fascinating" (Daisy Goodwin Mail on Sunday)

"Frequently eye-popping… The stories emphasise just how bewildering the issue of sex has become across the Middle East" (Nicholas Blincoe Daily Telegraph)

Book Description
