This book begins with an historical overview of the women of Turkey, Syria, Lebanon, Jordan, Iraq, and the West Bank of Palestine and then focuses on the museums of Jordan and the women who work in them. Carol Malt interweaves a history of Islam and a discussion of the emerging public role of women in Muslim society.
