9780199764464: The Oxford Encyclopedia of Islam and Women: Two-Volume Set (Oxford Encyclopedias of Islamic Studies)

Scholarship on Islam and women has expanded exponentially over the past twenty years, with increasing specialization within the field, as well as cross-pollination between other fields and disciplines. With this surge in interest there is a genuine need for a systematic reference work to provide balanced comprehensive coverage of the field.

The Oxford Encyclopedia of Islam and Women is designed to meet this need by providing clear, current, comprehensive information on the major topics of scholarly interest within the study of women and Islam.

The Encyclopedia, which is based on the highly acclaimed Oxford Encyclopedia of the Islamic World and is one of four encyclopedias in the Islamic World series, is being published as an e-book, in print, and on Oxford Islamic Studies Online. It features several hundred in-depth articles written by leading experts and is an excellent single source for accurate overview articles covering all aspects of this flourishing area of research.

About the Author:


Natana J. DeLong-Bas teaches in the department of theology at Boston College. She is the author of Wahhabi Islam: From Revival and Reform to Global Jihad (2004), Notable Muslims: A Biographical Dictionary (2006), and co-author of Women in Muslim Family Law revised edition, with John L. Esposito (2001). She has served as editor for and contributor to The Oxford Dictionary of Islam, and contributor to The Encyclopaedia of the Qur'an (2004), and deputy editor for The Encyclopedia of the Islamic World. She is a frequent public speaker on Islam, Wahhabism, and Saudi Arabia.

From Booklist:

Gender and religion have been discussed since ancient times. This two-volume work focuses specifically on Islam and women. Issues related to women are primarily seen through the lens of contemporary gender studies. However, Islamic themes are seen not only as those related to the practice of the faith but also as those that relate to the diverse cultures of the Muslim peoples and governance of countries that have sizable Muslim populations or Muslim empires. Although the entries span premodern to contemporary times, the main focus is on the twentieth and twenty-first centuries. Topics that concern both women and Islam (such as family law and gender relationships) are well represented. Other topics that don’t fundamentally pertain to women (such as Islamic financing) are also included, with special attention on those aspects that relate to women (even though in some cases the relationship may be peripheral). There are very few topics that relate to Islam but don’t state how they relate to women. Certain topics that relate directly to gender studies (such as contraception and homosexuality) are mentioned in other related entries but are not included as thorough, independent entries. Hence, readers may feel that this work is more an encyclopedia of Islam than it is an encyclopedia of women. The writing style is well suited for the general reader, and terms that are unique to Islam are explained as they arise. A glossary of such terms would have been helpful, as would more diligent cross-referencing of the entries. Given the breadth of topics covered, this work would be suitable for the general reader interested in Islam and women. Scholars with more specific interests may find this work too general but useful for background information. Recommended for advanced high-school and undergraduate students as well as general readers interested in Islam and the perception of women. --Muhammed Hassanali
