Review:

''Avoids both the sensational and the stereotypical... insightful... a valid, entertaining account of women in the Muslim world." (The New York Times Book Review)

''A rare look at a significant segment of the world's population that literally has been cloaked in mystery for generations." (The Seattle Times)

''There has been nothing finer on the subject from a Western observer... she looks at it from the heart.. .mixing historical perspective with piercingly observed journalism." (Newsday)

''Powerful and enlightening... Brooks presents stunning vignettes of Muslim women... and carefully distinguishes misogyny and oppressive cultural traditions from what she considers the true teaching of the Koran." (Publishers Weekly)
