Lindsey Moores groundbreaking book demonstrates ways in which women appropriate textual and visual modes of representation, often in cross-fertilizing ways, in challenges to Orientalist/colonialist, nationalist, Islamist, and multicultural paradigms.

She provides an accessible but theoretically-informed analysis by foregrounding tropes of vision, visibility and voice- post-nationalist melancholia and mother/daughter narratives- transformations of homes and harems- and border crossings in time, space, language, and media.In doing so, Moore moves beyond notions of speaking or looking back to encompass a diverse feminist poetics and politics and to emphasize ethical forms of representation and reception.

Arab, Muslim, Woman is distinctive in the eclectic body of work that it brings together. Discussing Algeria, Egypt, Jordan, Lebanon, Morocco, the Palestinian territories, and Tunisia, as well as postcolonial Europe, Moore argues for better integration of Arab Muslim contexts in the postcolonial canon. In a book for readers interested in womens studies, history, literature, and visual media, we encounter work by Assia Djebar, Mona Hatoum, Fatima Mernissi, Ahlam Mosteghanemi, Nawal el Saadawi, Leila Sebbar, Zineb Sedira, Ahdaf Soueif, Moufida Tlatli, Fadwa Tuqan, and many other women.
