Description:
Originally published: London: Chatto & Windus, 2013.
If you really want to know a people, start by looking inside their bedrooms. As political change sweeps the streets and squares, parliaments and presidential palaces of the Arab world, Shereen El Feki has been looking at upheaval a little closer to home - in the sexual lives of men and women in Egypt and across the region. The result is an informative and insightful account of a highly sensitive, and still largely secret, aspect of Arab society. Sex is entwined in religion, tradition, politics, economics and culture, so it makes the perfect lens for examining the region's complex social landscape.
