Product description

Review

"A valuable contribution in many areas, giving us new dimensions of nomadic and Arab culture, poetry, women, and gender roles and a fresh way of looking at the interrelatedness of the ideology and politics of sentiment. An outstanding anthropological ethnography of the Bedouin of the Egyptian desert, as well as an unusually skillful analysis of gender and social structure as it is expressed through women's poetic discourse."--"International Journal of Middle East Studies --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

From the Inside Flap

"A fascinating, fresh interpretation of the mechanics of the twin codes of Bedouin behavior: the 'code of honor' . . . and the 'code of modesty.' The argument is compelling--it makes sense of honor killings, the veiling of women, and a seemingly excessive sexual modesty. There is a certain excitement here, as the pieces of the puzzle fall into place."--Inea Bushnaq, New York Times Book Review

"A brilliant study of moral constraint and personal expression. . . . Detailed, immediate, and superbly composed. . . . Some books extend discussions, others launch them. This is one of the latter."--Clifford Geertz

"A truly extraordinary book--beautifully and modestly written, remarkably insightful, consistently compelling."--Edward Said
