Sexuality in the Arab World
Arab cultural discourse has been slow to respond to changing sexual behavior. The contributors to this collection pick up the slack, ranging across such disciplines as literature, history, sociology, and psychology.
Is Damascus the "chastity capital" of the Middle East? How do gay men cruise in Beirut? Are young women in Tunis pressured both to lose and gain weight?
The fresh, compelling research topics covered include masculinity and migration, colonialism and sexual health, and fantasy and violence.
