Nubian Women of West Aswan : Negotiating Tradition and Change Hardback
In the decade-and-a-half since the first edition of this book was written, there have been dramatic changes both in the town of Aswan and among the devoutly Muslim Nubians of the village of West Aswan.
Anne Jennings' revised and updated ethnography reflects those changes and also incorporates new material from archaeological/historical research and new literature on the impact of tourism, the work of Muslim women in the informal sector, and the interdependence of male and female domains.It captures the realities of everyday life for women in a devoutly Islamic society undergoing dramatic change.
