Ashgate Publishing, Ltd., 2008 - Social Science - 218 pages
The main concern of this volume is to explore the contemporary political and social dynamics pertaining to sexuality in the Middle East. The chapters illustrate that discourses, debates and challenges that surround sexuality are complex, and cannot be reduced to a single underlying factor, be it religion, culture, feminism - or secularism.
