INTERNATIONAL BESTSELLER - Pulitzer Prize winning author presents the stories of a wide range of Muslim women in the Middle East. As an Australian American and an experienced foreign correspondent, Brooks' thoughtful analysis attempts to understand the precarious status of women in the wake of Islamic fundamentalism. "Frank, enraging, and captivating." - The New York Times Nine Parts of Desire is the story of Brooks' intrepid journey toward an understanding of the women behind the veils, and of the often contradictory political, religious, and cultural forces that shape their lives. Defying our stereotypes about the Muslim world, Brooks' acute analysis of the world's fastest growing religion deftly illustrates how Islam's holiest texts have been misused to justify repression of women, and how male pride and power have warped the original message of a once liberating faith. As a prizewinning foreign correspondent for The Wall Street Journal, Geraldine Brooks spent six years covering the Middle East through wars, insurrections, and the volcanic upheaval of resurgent fundamentalism. Yet for her, headline events were only the backdrop to a less obvious but more enduring drama: the daily life of Muslim women.

Discover the acclaimed non-fiction of Pulitzer Prize-winning novelist Geraldine Brooks. 'Frank, enraging and captivating.' The New Yorker Australian writer Geraldine Brooks is now known internationally for her bestselling novels, but as a foreign correspondent Geraldine spent six years covering the Middle East. And when her poised and sophisticated assistant at the Cairo bureau of the Wall Street Journal suddenly 'adopted the uniform of a Muslim fundamentalist', Geraldine Brooks set out to discover the truth about women and Islam. Sometimes adopting a chador as camouflage, she was granted meetings (and often astonishingly intimate insights) by everyone from Queen Noor of Jordan to former Iranian President Rafsanjani's daughter. She met with Palestinians protesting about 'honour killings' for adultery and sheltered girls transformed into warriors by the Emirates' armed forces. Throughout the Middle East, Brooks was invited into the homes and lives of these women where she found real stories that overturn western stereotypes. With an Afterword by the author.

«اضطهادُ المرأةِ لا يَرجعُ إلى الشرقِ أو الغربِ أو الإسلامِ أو الأديان، ولكنَّه يَرجعُ أساسًا إلى النُّظمِ الأبويةِ في المجتمعِ البَشريِّ كلِّه.» جسَّدتْ مُعاناةُ المرأةِ العربيةِ ضدَّ القِيَمِ والعاداتِ والتقاليدِ الموروثة، بالإضافةِ إلى الفَهمِ الخاطئِ للدِّين، مَلْحمةً كبيرةً امتدَّتْ لعُصورٍ طويلة، ولم تكُنْ تلكَ المُعاناةُ حصادَ رافدٍ واحدٍ من تلكَ الرَّوافد، بل انحدرَتْ منها جميعًا. ولم تكُنْ للشرقِ أو الغربِ يدٌ فيما وصلَتْ له حالُ المرأة، وبالتبعيةِ لم تكُنْ للدينِ المسيحيِّ أو الإسلاميِّ مُشارَكةٌ في اضطهادِها، غيرَ أنَّ هذا كلَّه استُتْبِعَ بتأويلاتٍ تُراثيةٍ عالجَتْ مشكلاتِ المرأةِ بأشكالٍ عدةٍ خاطئة، أدَّتْ إلى ظُهورِ المَوروثاتِ الشعبيةِ التي تحُضُّ على العُنفِ ضدَّ المرأةِ وسَلْبِها حُقوقَها، ومَنْعِها من مُمارسةِ حياةٍ طبيعيةٍ كانَتْ في القديمِ حقًّا أصيلًا لها لا يُنازعُها فيه مُنازِع.

A pioneer of modern motherhood studies, Andrea O'Reilly explores motherhood's current representation and practice, considering developments that were unimaginable decades ago: the Internet, interracial surrogacy, raising transchildren, male mothering, intensive mothering, queer parenting, the applications of new biotechnologies, and mothering in the post-9/11 era. Her work pulls together a range of disciplines and themes in motherhood studies. She confronts the effects of globalization, HIV/AIDS, welfare reform, politicians as mothers, third wave feminism, and the evolving motherhood movement, and she incorporates Chicana, African-American, Canadian, Muslim, queer, low-income, trans, and lesbian perspectives.
