Doumato, Eleanor Abdella Getting God's Ear: Women, Islam, and Healing in Saudi Arabia and the Gulf
New York: Columbia University Press, 2000. First Edition. Paperback. New. 8vo - over 7" - 9" tall 0231116675 The circumscribed role of women in orthodox religious societies has long been an intriguing and perplexing phenomenon, and the reconciliation of feminism with traditional religious practice is controversial to say the least. Getting God's Ear examines the role of religious worship and spiritual affairs in women's lives in the 20th-century Arab world, the meaning of women's exclusion from the sacred precincts of the mosque, women's limited access to religious learning, and the effects of this exclusion on their lives. Yet in spite of such exclusion, Arab women strive for spirituality within their roles as midwives, healers, and ritual participants, seeking to experience community, to heal and be healed, and to find ways of getting God to hear them. Includes illustrations, notes, bibliography and index. (Book ref. 038226) £9.99

Bahrani, Zainab Women of Babylon: Gender and Representation in Mesopotamia
London: Routledge, 2011. First Edition. Paperback. New. 8vo - over 7" - 9" tall 0415619386 Representations of sexual difference (whether visual or textual) have become an area of much theoretical concern and investigation in recent feminist scholarship. Yet although a wide range of relevant evidence survives from the ancient Near East, it has been exceptional for those studying women in the ancient world to stray outside the traditional bounds of Greece and Rome. Women of Babylon is a much-needed historical/art historical study that investigates the concepts of femininity which prevailed in Assyro-Babylonian society. Zainab Bahrani's detailed analysis of how the culture of ancient Mesopotamia defined sexuality and gender roles both in, and through, representation is enhanced by a rich selection of visual material extending from 6500 BC - 1891 AD. Professor Bahrani also investigates the ways in which women of the ancient Near East have been perceived in classical scholarship up to the nineteenth century. (Book ref. 037725) £25.00
