Pressestimmen

"What lies behind the phenomenon of Muslim women wearing "Islamic dress"? Leila Ahmed provides an engaging tour through nationalism, socialism, Islam, and anti-imperialism in her beautifully written book, weaving together the themes of politics, dress, and women's changing roles with her usual historical and literary skill. A fascinating read."--Jane Smith, Harvard University

--Jane Smith (02/02/2011)

"A powerful and critically important analysis of the veil's modern history and reemergence in our time. This is a history Leila Ahmed herself has lived through and witnessed, especially in North America. It is compelling reading for the many readers with questions about the veil and its meanings."--Diana Eck, author of "A New Religious America"

--Diana Eck (02/02/2011)

"Leila Ahmed ''s views on women, Islam and Islamism are not only interesting but courageous and need to be read and debated. Her new book brings the critical historical perspective necessary to understand the deep and quiet revolution that is occurring among American Muslims."--Tariq Ramadan, University of Oxford

--Tariq Ramadan (02/02/2011)

."...an acute study of how issues of political power and empire interact with women's own claims to autonomy within families and communities. Ahmed beds her analysis into the wider political currents of Egypt without ever losing sight of women's own interpretations of what they were doing and why."--Madeleine Bunting, "The Guardian"--The Guardian"Madeleine Bunting" (06/04/2011)

"'A Quiet Revolution' is an exceptional study of women in Islam. Their story is a remarkable one, and Leila Ahmed tells it with grace and understanding." --Joseph Preville, "Time Out"--Joseph Preville"Time Out" (05/22/2011)

"In the post-9/11 world, as a Leila Ahmed points out in this gripping yet erudite book, the veil worn by women in Western countries such as Britain and America has come to symbolise a range of public postures, from the resistance to Islamophobia or anti-Muslim prejudice experienced on the domestic front, to expressions of support for Muslim women in places such as Iraq, Bosnia, Somalia, or Palestine, exemplified by the group that calls itself ' Scarves for Solidarity.' How is it, Ahmed asks, that a form of head-covering once seen as a symbol of patriarchal oppression can now be regarded as a call for justice?"--Malise Ruthven, "Literary Review"--Malise Ruthven"Literary Review" (09/01/2011)

"Ms. Ahmed''s narrative deftly captures the mood of the [colonial] era, registering the range of ironies surrounding the status of the veil."--Mira Sethi, "Wall Street Journal"--Mira Sethi "Wall Street Journal "

"Ms. Ahmed gives us a fascinating portrait of the Muslim Brotherhood, especially of its 'unsung mother, ' Zainab al-Ghazali."--Mira Sethi, "Wall Street Journal"--Mira Sethi "Wall Street Journal "

"Ms. Ahmed's narrative deftly captures the mood of the [colonial] era, registering the range of ironies surrounding the status of the veil."--Mira Sethi, "Wall Street Journal"--Mira Sethi "Wall Street Journal "

"Leila Ahmed takes a subject that arouses great emotion, shows how the resurgence of veiling has come about, and explains with great clarity what it means. Ahmed's learned and engaging argument should make all readers examine their prejudices. This valuable and much needed introduction to major trends in the modern Muslim world leads to some novel and surprising conclusions. An important book, it should be required reading for journalists, educationalists, politicians and religious leaders."--Karen Armstrong, Author, "A History of God"

--Karen Armstrong (02/02/2011)

"Leila Ahmed 's views on women, Islam and Islamism are not only interesting but courageous and need to be read and debated. Her new book brings the critical historical perspective necessary to understand the deep and quiet revolution that is occurring among American Muslims."--Tariq Ramadan, University of Oxford

--Tariq Ramadan (02/02/2011)

Selected by the ALA for the Bridging Cultures Bookshelf on Muslim Journeys project--Bridging Cultures Bookself Selection, Muslim Journeys Project"American Library Association (ALA)" (06/22/2012)

"A discerning account of feminists, veiled and unveiled, and their creation of what [Ahmed] sees as a new space within American Islam...In delicate passages, Ahmed ventures her own longings for a larger space for women within the faith--for free-spirited inquiry and discussion and a return to the rational interpretation and scrutiny of holy texts. Ahmed finds a distinctly American Islam where women are playing an unprecedented role and gender inequality is often discussed."--;i>New Republic"--Christine Stansell "New Republic Online "

5.0 von 5 Sternen timely 8. August 2013
Von Whitney S. Bodman - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
The focus of this book is on modern Egypt and then America. That makes it very timely. In some ways the modern history of Egypt overwhelms the focus on the veil, but that is appropriate. The veil should not be the primary focus, since it is a sign and representation of a larger political context. that is the point.
In the latter part of the book the focus shifts to America. Here again the veil is put in the context of a much larger development of Muslim society in America - if one can speak of "a" Muslim society.
My one concern with this book is that she refers to the leadership of the largest Muslim organizations in America, generically, as Muslim Brotherhood. I see the point that she is making. The form of Islam that has become normative in the Islamic Society of North America has an intentional piety that might be associated with the Muslim brotherhood in Egypt. I question how accurate it is to carry that description over to America, as if somehow various American Muslim organizations are extensions of the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt. They are not, even if some of the practices look similar.
This book is rigorous in its research but at the same time personal and sensitive.

Von MEPchll - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
I was curious about the issue of women choosing to wear the veil particularly in Egypt in the 1070's and this book did a very good job illuminating the circumstances where women made the shocking-at-the-time choice to adopt the veil. This is a very quick and easy read.

3.0 von 5 Sternen Not what I expected, however very interesting 8. März 2013
Von Nachi - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
I thought this book was going to concentrate more on the hijab subject, but what it mainly talks about is the history of Egypt's colonization and the Muslim brotherhood. I feel that it barely talks about the hijab revolution as it says. I am happy to be able to understand more about Egypts developement, but don't think this book has the correct name.

I like when Ahmed writes about women's lives and stories-she get's too bogged down in academia, she gives the whole history of the Muslim Brotherhood, and while interesting, not what I had expected. Had to put it down, will get back to it when I want a history lesson. A good reference book, just overly detailed on what I thought were esoteric topics.
5.0 von 5 Sternen A Quiet Revolution:The Book 29. Dezember 2012
Von Audrey Wilcox - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
This book is an incredibly well written history and well backed argument about the resurgence of the veil now and the reasons for the veil in the past and today. I can honestly say that Leila Ahmed has changed my perspective about veiling and the Muslim religion's connection to people. She gives reams upon reams of evidence and facts about the veil and the women who do or do not wear it. I would recommend this book to anyone looking to widen their perspective or to simply learn more about muslim women in the Middle East and America.
