The New Arab Man:
Emergent Masculinities, Technologies, and Islam in the Middle East
Marcia C. Inhorn

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


"This is a groundbreaking book that makes an extraordinary contribution to the fields of medical anthropology, Middle East studies, and reproductive health. Drawing on rigorous ethnographic fieldwork in multiple countries, Inhorn offers a well-researched, nuanced, and moving reflection on what she terms 'emergent masculinities' in the Middle East. Inhorn is a trailblazer in medical anthropology, and The New Arab Man addresses astonishing gaps in gender studies and related fields."--Angel M. Foster, University of Ottawa and Ibis Reproductive Health

"The New Arab Man is a tour de force that makes a major contribution to multiple fields of scholarship. At a time of great global tension in relation to the associations between Islam, masculinity, and terrorism, this is an incredibly timely book that will act to combat gross stereotypes and deeply rooted stigmas. There is no doubt in my mind that it will become a classic work of ethnographic research."--Richard G. Parker, Columbia University
