The Essential Nawal El Saadawi : A Reader, Paperback / softback Book

The Essential Nawal El Saadawi : A Reader Paperback / softback

Edited by Adele Newson Horst


The writings of Nawal El Saadawi are essential to anyone wishing to understand the contemporary Arab world.

Her dissident voice has stayed as consistent in its critique of neo.imperialist international politics as it has in its denunciation of women's oppression, both in her native Egypt and in the wider world. Saadawi is a figure of international significance, and her work has a central place in Arabic history and culture of the last half century.

Featuring work never before translated into English, The Essential Nawal El Saadawi gathers together a wide range of Saadawi's writing.

From novellas and short stories to essays on politics, culture, religion and sex; from extensive interviews to her work as a dramatist; from poetry to autobiography, this book is essential for anyone wishing to gain a sense of the breadth of Saadawi's work.
