One of the most fascinating works to fall into obscurity almost immediately after its initial publication, this 1886 autobiography by EMILY RUETE (1844-1924)-born in Zanzibar as Salamah bint Said, a princess of that realm as well as of Oman-offers a surprising perspective on the experiences of women in the Arab world in the later 19th century. Translated by LIONEL STRACHEY (1864-1927) from the original Germany-Ruete settled in Europe after becoming a Christian-and first brought to readers of English in 1907-it gives us an intimate view on: life in an Arabian household the Arab love affair with horses divorce in the East ceremonies for newborn babies female fashions in Arabia the social position of women in the East Muslin festivals the author's escape to Europe and much more. In this era of renewed contention between East and West, this captivating book allows us a new historical outlook on a still-secretive culture.
