The exotic, cruel, yet fascinating world of the harem is recreated in a history that makes use of firsthand accounts

From Publishers Weekly:

This study considers the everyday lives of odalisques, the harem as the Moslem equivalent of purdah and male-dominated harem life as symbolic of the collective unconscious. "Ultimately, the text is a choppy amalgam of history, reminiscence, conjecture and intermittently overblown writing," said PW . "Much more evocative are the 125 photographs and reproductions of art works included here."
