In this important new work, Margaret Meriwether and Judith Tucker synthesize and make accessible the results of the extensive research on women and gender done over the last twenty years. Using new theoretical approaches and methodologies as well as nontraditional sources, scholars studying women and gender issues in Middle Eastern societies have made great progress in shedding light on these complex subjects. A Social History of Women and Gender in the Modern Middle East provides an overview of this scholarship on women and gender in the nineteenth- and twentieth-century Middle East.The book is organized along thematic lines that reflect major focuses of research in this area—gender and work, gender and the state, gender and law, gender and religion, and feminist movements—and each chapter is written by a scholar who has done original research on the topic. Although structured around the individual author's own work, the chapters also include overviews and assessments of other research, highlights of ongoing debates and key issues, and comparisons across regions of the Middle East. An insightful introduction centers the various chapters around key theoretical, methodological, and historical issues and makes connections with other areas of social historical research on the Middle East and with research on gender and women's history in other parts of the world.Although there are many studies available on women and gender, A Social History of Women and Gender in the Modern Middle East provides a breadth of coverage and assessment of the field that is not found elsewhere.

Gender has now become a pervasive topic in the humanities and social sciences. Yet despite the popularity of gender studies both inside and outside the academy, some have argued that the radical debates which first characterised gender studies have lost their critical edge. Brooke Holmes here rescues ancient ideas about sex and gender with an eye towards reinvigorating contemporary debate. She argues that modern engagements with classical antiquity have shaped the conversation about sex, gender and sexuality over the past decades. Her short, lively book offers the first account of how ancient Greek and Roman ideas have influenced the development of gender as a modern and postmodern concept, and how gender’s popularity has shaped the way we read evidence from the ancient Greco-Roman past. By re-examining ancient notions of sexual difference, bodies, culture and identity, Holmes shows that Plato, Aristotle, the Stoics, Epicureans and others force us to reassess what is at stake in present-day discussions about gender. The ancient world is thus seen to provide a vital resource for modern gender studies, prompting new strategies of interpretation.

Food and Gender: Identity and Power examines the significance of food-centered activities to gender relations and the construction of gendered identities across cultures. Food and Gender investigates how men's and women's relationships to food may influence or determine both gender complementarity and hierarchy. Two central questions about food and gender are emphasized in this book. First, how does the control of food production, distribution and consumption contribute to power and social position? Second, how does food symbolically connote "maleness" or "femaleness," and help to establish the social value of men and women? Other issues discussed include the differences in men's and women's attitudes about food and their bodies, and the "legitimacy" of the appetites of men versus women.
