For over a decade beginning in 1978, Lila Abu-Lughod lived, on and off, in the small Awlad 'Ali Bedouin community in Egypt. She witnessed striking changes, both cultural and economic, and she recorded the stories of the women. This edition is updated with a new preface by the author. She argues for the special urgency in today's polarized world of using knowledge of the particular lives of others to counter general images of "the Muslim woman" and to bring nuance and substance to feminist debates about culture and rights.
