''Combining the best of archival research, oral history, and textual analysis, . . . Amin's text offers new avenues of inquiry into the relationship between modern states and the lives of their female citizens.''--Lisa Pollard, University of North Carolina, Wilmington

''An imaginative and well-documented study of the development of modern Iranian womanhood that] demonstrates the developing nature of the patriarchal obstacles in the way of women's emancipation as much as it reveals the dynamism and complexity of the Women's Awakening.
