Synopsis: Hindus and Muslims of northern South Asia share the belief that women should seclude themselves from men and that men must supervise the conduct of women so that their behavior will not sully men's honor. While these practices are well known, until now no book has attempted to explain why they are so crucially important to so many people.

From the Back Cover: Hindus and Muslims of northern South Asia share the belief that women should seclude themselves from men, including some kinsmen, and that men must supervise the conduct of women so that their behavior will not sully men's honor. While these concepts--purdah and izzat--are well known, until now no book has attempted to explain why they are so crucially important to so many people. "A useful and compassionate overview of issues of immense social and political importance." --Journal of Asian Studies "A broadly based, sensitive, and balanced analysis . . . a highly readable book." --Contemporary Sociology "A recognized expert's clear explication of the intricate pattern of gender and other aspects of life across the region." --International Journal of Comparative Sociology "What is truly remarkable . . . is Mandelbaum's ability in so few pages to synthesize a varied literature, to discern common elements in purdah-izzat practices and ideology while recognizing significant variation by socioeconomic status, region, and religion, and to propose explanations for these beliefs and practices that deserve careful consideration. Those interested in gender systems should find this work of great value." --American Anthropologist
