I read this anthology while in Seminary at the Graduate Theological Union in Berkeley, California. I loved it, and I have frequently recommended it to others over the last thirty years. Since it is an anthology there is no need to read it from page one to the end. It is very well organized by different topics at different times in history. Islam is not some monolith. It is composed of many different peoples and many different cultures. This book does a good job of giving a glimpse at the many faces of Islamic culture.

I had to read this book for Islamic class and let me tell you this book was very well informative but it was a bit boring...Very factual which is important in the controversy about the treatment of women in Islam. It talks about that there are communal practice permitted freedom in muslim society. It is not right that the freedom is hard to get but I am reminded of the Susan B. Anthony and the suffragettes. Globally, Women always suffer. This is a good book for research.
