Reviews


Marilyn Booth is to be lauded for her careful and sophisticated analysis of Zaynab Fawwaz's biographical work Scattered Pearls. Thanks to her masterful study, Fawwaz and her literary production can now be recognized as constituting an important piece in the shaping of a 'colonial modernity' in the
Arab world in the late nineteenth century and signaling an emerging Muslim feminist consciousness at this time. This important work will be read with avid interest by all those who are interested in the holistic history of fin-de-siecle Egypt that includes both men's and women's voices and in
exploring its larger contemporary implications. -- Asma Afsaruddin, Professor of Islamic Studies, Indiana University
