9780253330277: Development, Change, and Gender in Cairo: A View from the Household (Indiana Series in Arab and Islamic Studies)

"... the quality of each of these essays is excellent, and the book warrants extensive reading by political scientists, sociologists, and all scholars of the contemporary Middle East. —American Journal of Sociology

"This book’s ethnographic material offers much to surprise and challenge assumptions about gender, Islam and social change in Egypt." —MESA Bulletin

"Taken together, these articles leave the reader with an excellent understanding of the realities of contemporary Egypt and a sense of the vitality and energy that permeates Cairo." —Digest of Middle East Studies

The essays presented here, based on extensive ethnographic research, focus on the Egyptian household as the key institution for understanding the dynamics of political, economic, and social change. Economic liberalization has had particular, often ambivalent consequences for low-income groups, especially women, and for gender relations.

From the Back Cover:

This book presents a perspective largely missing from social science research on contemporary Cairo. Through this collaboration and presentation of our diverse research we hope to demonstrate the important role the household plays in the political economy, social structure, and political life of Egypt. This perspective has evolved from detailed and sustained field research and interviews among lower-income groups in Egyptian society within neighborhoods and communities of the Greater Cairo region, including those once at the threshold of the lower middle class who are rapidly losing economic ground.
