Women, Property and Islam: Palestinian Experiences, 1920-1990 (Cambridge Middle East Studies) ebook

by Annelies Moors


Engaging, convincing, and brilliantly crafted, Women, Property and Islam is one of the best scholarly books I have . This study of different Palestinian women reveals the circumstances under which they can actually claim property rights and when they are prevented from doing so.

Engaging, convincing, and brilliantly crafted, Women, Property and Islam is one of the best scholarly books I have read in some time. The ten chapters of this book provide ample detail and a most useful level of specificity. They allow readers to appreciate the need for analytic caution before translating legal prinicples into data, and they quietly but effectively show the need to put any "ethnographic present" in a historical context.

Cambridge: Cambridge University Press, 1995. The heart of Moors' investigation lies in her analysis of Muslim Palestinian women's relations to property. The book's methodology is primarily anthropological and ethnographic; yet the use of Shari'a (Islamic law) court records gives it significant historical dimension. In Islamic legal context, women may inherit property, accept a marriage dowry ("prompt" and "deferred") and conduct business based on these sources of income.
