Review: A History of Women’s Seclusion in the Middle East
Journal of the History of Sexuality
In this book Ann Chamberlin, a playwright and author of historical fiction trained in the languages and archaeology of the Middle East, tackles the timely and sensitive topic of the practices of seclusion, including veiling. This impressionistic book sets out ambitiously to understand modern Muslim practices through an examination of the history of the origins of seclusion practices.
