Présentation de l'éditeur :

With a New Afterword

As a prizewinning foreign correspondent for The Wall Street Journal, Geraldine Brooks spent six years covering the Middle East through wars, insurrections, and the volcanic upheaval of resurgent fundamentalism. Yet for her, headline events were only the backdrop to a less obvious but more enduring drama: the daily life of Muslim women. Nine Parts of Desire is the story of Brooks' intrepid journey toward an understanding of the women behind the veils, and of the often contradictory political, religious, and cultural forces that shape their lives. Defying our stereotypes about the Muslim world, Brooks' acute analysis of the world's fastest growing religion deftly illustrates how Islam's holiest texts have been misused to justify repression of women, and how male pride and power have warped the original message of a once liberating faith.

Revue de presse :

“Frank, enraging, and captivating.”
The New Yorker

“Powerful and enlightening...Brooks presents stunning vignettes of Muslim women...and carefully distinguishes misogyny and oppressive cultural traditions from what she considers the true teachings of the Koran.”
Publishers Weekly

“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

“Avoids both the sensational and the stereotypical...insightful...a valid, entertaining account of women in the Muslim world.”
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.”
Seattle Times

Description du livre Bantam Doubleday Dell Publishing Group Inc, United States, 1996. Paperback. État : New. Anchor Bk Trade.. 198 x 132 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. Nine Parts of Desire: The Hidden World of Islamic Women is the story of Brook s intrepid journey toward an understanding of the women behind the veils, and of the often contradictory political, religious, and cultural forces that shape their lives. In fundamentalist Iran, Brooks finagles an invitation to tea with the ayatollah s widow - and discovers that Mrs. Khomeini dyes her hair. In Saudi Arabia, she eludes the severe segregation of the sexes and attends a bacchanal, laying bare the hypocrisy of this austere, male-dominated society. In war-torn Ethiopia, she watches as a female gynecologist repairs women who have undergone genital mutilation justified by a distorted interpretation of Islam. In villages and capitals throughout the Middle East, she finds that a feminism of sorts has flowered under the forbidding shroud of the chador as she makes other startling discoveries that defy our stereotypes about the Muslim world. Nine Parts of Desire is much more than a captivating work of firsthand reportage; it is also an acute analysis of the world s fastest-growing religion, deftly illustrating how Islam s holiest texts have been misused to justify the repression of women. It was, after all, the Shiite leader Ali who proclaimed that God created sexual desire in ten parts, then gave nine parts to women. N° de réf. du libraire AAS9780385475778
