The New Arab Family: الأسرة العربية الجديدة
This volume represents revised versions of a collection of papers presented at Cairo Papers Ninth Annual Symposium on ''The New Arab Family, '' held in May 2000. Marriage, divorce, and related topics were center stage, particularly in the demographic papers. Another focus was to combine two very different approaches to the study of the family -- on the one hand demographic, and on the other broadly sociological or anthropological, or as some would say, psychodynamic, that is to say focusing on dyadic or multi-member networks of relationships within the family. Some of these papers in turn focused on ''agency, '' the ways in which individual action fit into cultural and social frames. The research covers most of the Arab world, though with a focus on Egypt. In addition to general papers relying on demographic data from different parts of the Arab world, the volume includes case studies from Tunisia, Lebanon, and Saudi Arabia.
