Critique:

"It is a pleasure to read [this] book.... For those interested in contemporary African ethnography, women's studies, or taking a deeper look at Egypt's own cultural diversity, this paperback should be on your shelf." - Middle East Journal "Describes in detail the life cycle of a typical woman, including information on dress, infibulation, giving birth, childhood socialization, courtship, marriage, and death. Descriptions of daily routines, house plans, food preparation, leisure activities, and friendships will bring the people of West Aswan alive to readers.... Will be of use to, and enjoyed by, undergraduate and graduate students in the classroom." - Judy Brink, International Journal of Middle East Studies "This is a vivid ethnography, a well-illustrated and detailed account of women's networks and an analysis of their importance." - Sondra Hale, The International Journal of African Historical Studies "It is gratifying to welcome this Nubian ethnography from a scholar with Jennings's empathetic concerns and privileged identity." - Robert A. Fernea, MESA Bulletin"
