For many the mark of fundamentalism and female oppression, the Islamic veil is a powerful symbol. Navigating complex relationships between religion, culture, politics, and women's freedom, this lively introduction goes beyond the simplistic mainstream understandings about the veil and whether it is "good" or "bad" to explore the experiences of veiling from the points of view of contemporary Muslim women. Using diverse case studies from around the world, including the new veiling movement among the Egyptian middle-class, the veil's role in American Muslims' post 9/11 identity, and jihab fashion in Indonesia, Elizabeth Bucar offers a truly global perspective on the Islamic veil in today's world.
