Medicines of the Soul by Fedwa Malti-Douglas

Book Description

In Medicines of the Soul, the autobiographical writings of three leading women in today's Islamic revival movement reveal dramatic stories of religious transformation. As interpreted by Fedwa Malti-Douglas, the autobiographies provide a powerful, groundbreaking portrayal of gender, religion, and discourses of the body in Arabo-Islamic culture. At the center of each story is a lively female Islamic spirituality that questions secular hierarchies while reaffirming patriarchal ones.

Circling Song by Fedwa Malti-Douglas Circling Song, Paperback (April 2009)

With a precise and hypnotic intensity, Nawal El Saadawi pursues the conflicts of sex, class, gender and military violence deep into the psyche.

Starr Report Disrobed by Fedwa Malti-Douglas Starr Report Disrobed, Paperback (June 2000)

Fedwa Malti-Douglas reveals how The Starr Report exposed the cultural tendencies, desires, and taboos of Americans while it disrobed the most powerful man in the world. Fraught with assumptions about gender and sexuality, the report reflects a strategy to use Clinton's "body natural" to undermine his "body politic."
