9780813339436: Daughters of Tunis: Women, Family, and Networks in a Muslim City

Tea and Visits is an innovative ethnography that carefully weaves the words and intimate, personal stories of four Tunisian women and their families with a statistical analysis of women's survival strategies in a rapidly urbanizing, industrializing Muslim nation. Delineating three distinct network strategies, Holmes-Eber demonstrates the public” role of neighborhoods as informal social security systems, and the impact of women's education, class and migration on women's resources and networks. An engaging, warm, and oftentimes humorous portrait of Muslim women's responses to development, Tea and Visits is an exciting new approach to ethnography: merging the historically disparate methods of both qualitative and quantitative analysis.
