9781472587145: Crisis of Islamic Masculinities
Críticas:

The Crisis of Islamic Masculinities shows how any notion of Muslim or Islamic masculinity is always constructed against a number of "others" - women, the West and God ... This is an important work for those interested in gender relations in Muslim societies. I only wish that my students could read English because this work would help them to explore a broader range of gender constructions without the (fully justifiable) fear of being labelled un-Islamic. -- Julia Droebner, An-Najah National University Times Higher Education De Sondy makes an original and rich contribution to the burgeoning literature on Islamic masculinities while engaging productively with Muslim feminist thought. -- Kecia Ali, Associate Professor of Religion, Boston University, USA. The study of Muslim masculinities is in its infancy, and The Crisis of Islamic Masculinities easily succeeds in laying a secure foundation for this highly significant but neglected field - a major step forward. -- Ahmet T. Karamustafa, Professor of History, University of Maryland, USA. This book opens the way to rethinking what it means to be a man in the Islamic tradition, showing the intricate ways in which constructions of femininity and masculinity are intertwined. It is a must-read for those wishing to understand the Islamists' obsession with sexuality, their rejection of gender equality, and their invocation of religious dogma as the basis for gender rights. -- Ziba Mir-Hosseini, Centre for Islamic and Middle Eastern Law, SOAS, UK. This book might be of interest to scholars working on various areas including but not limited to gender, Islam, and feminism. In summary, it is a useful book for the library. -- Nazli Alimen, London College of Fashion, University of the Arts London Gender, Place & Culture: A Journal of Feminist Geography Ultimately, De Sondy does not aim to uncover one specific definition of true Islamic masculinity, but, rather, to explore the different ways in which Muslims have understood masculinity ... The Qur'anic chapter is particularly interesting, insofar as De Sondy feels that the Qur'an is inconclusive with respect to uncovering a single definition of masculinity, since many Qur'anic male figures - such as Adam, Jesus, Joseph, and the Prophet Muhammad - lived significantly different lives. -- Amina Inloes, The Islamic College, London Journal of Shi'a Islamic Studies, 7.3
