Modernizing Women
Valentine M. Moghadam
Price: $ 22.5

Praise for the 1st edition:
"One of the best studies of women and social change in the Middle East ever to be published.... superb."¿Choice

"[A] superb and wide-ranging study."¿DOMES

"Moghadam addresses a bewildering array of puzzling anomalies and, slicing skillfully through them, exposes their bare bones and substructure."¿Middle East Journal

"A tour de force.... a cogent and lively book that thoughtfully considers the political and economic issues emanating from gender constructs in state-building and economic development."¿Feminist Collections

Moghadam's influential study of gender dynamics and social processes in the Middle East has been fully updated to reflect a decade of major changes¿including shifts in development strategy and population policy, the rise of a reform movement in Iran incorporating both Islamic and secular feminists, and the rise and fall of the Taliban in Afghanistan. New data and analysis of emerging trends make this second edition a welcome successor.

Valentine M. Moghadam is director of women's studies and associate professor of sociology at Illinois State University.
