The Professor and the Fossil : Some observations on Aronald J. Toynbee's A Study of History

By Samuel, Maurice

New York: Alfred A. Knopf. Very Good in Good dust jacket. 1956. Hardcover. Black cloth, VG+ with bumped corners. Clean, straight copy. Dust jacket heavily worn; in clear removable cover. Pages: vi, [5] 4-268, ix-index, [1] colophon. From the flap: It is Mr. Samuel's closely and vigourously argued contention that A Study of History misjudges and misrepresents the Jews in history, in culture, and in contemporary life. The result is a lively, illuminating, and discussion-provoking book. "His (Samuel's) book, while inevitably falling into the pitfall of imbalance, is a powerful document, and one that deserves close study." Kirkus review. ; 8vo .

In Search of Islamic Feminism : One Woman's Global Journey

By Fernea, Elizabeth Warnock

Doubleday. Near Fine in Near Fine dust jacket. 1997. First Edition. Hardcover. 0385475187 . Near fine. Pages; xvi, 1-430. Illustrated. "Feminism, like democracy, is not an easy sell in many parts of the world, especially in traditional societies with autocratic regimes. However, feminism today enjoys an advantage in that it can adapt to local cultural forms and practices; hence the author's concept of Islamic feminism. Here she sets out to answer basic yet sometimes complex questions about Middle Eastern women: their predicament, what feminism means to them, whether its ideas are helpful, and the alternatives in traditional societies. The last chapter is on Muslim women in the United States. Although the author states in conclusion that Islamic feminism seems to her to be alive and well in the countries she visited, gender equality is still a long way off. Highly recommended for all libraries and essential for women's studies collections." Libary Journal review. ; 9.30 X 6.30 X 1.50 inches; 448 pages .
