Questioning the Veil:
Open Letters to Muslim Women
Marnia Lazreg

Book Description | Table of Contents
Introduction [in PDF format]

ADDITIONAL REVIEWS:

"[Lazreg's] strong, but sensitive, prose rescues the veil debate from theological disputation and overly footnoted treatises."--Daniel Martin Varisco, Contemporary Islam

"[I]t is good that such a book exists. Every woman should read it and reflect on it honestly before making up her mind about veiling."--Fanny Le Reste, Suomen Antropologi

ADDITIONAL ENDORSEMENTS:

"A wonderful read: well-written, well-constructed, well-argued, and highly significant. Lazreg addresses a controversial topic and takes intellectual risks. This little gem of a book is brilliant."--Sondra Hale, University of California, Los Angeles

"Clearly expressed and convincing, this book makes arguments and counters opposing views in a subtle, gentle, and imaginative way. Readers will find the book fascinating and will be drawn to its personal nature and elegant answers."--Judith Herrin, King's College London
