A Look Inside
Reviews
Review Quotes
'Women and Islam in Early Modern English Literature points readers in a new direction. The study of Anglo-Islamic relations has been dominated by the male perspective, and Andrea rightly alerts scholars to the need for bringing in the female perspective, from both the Ottoman (and Arab and Armenian and Circasian) East as well as the English.'
