Details


Through nuanced anthropological accounts of Muslim men's everyday lives in the Middle East, Asia, Africa, and diasporic communities in the West, Reconceiving Muslim Men challenges pervasive Western stereotypes of Muslim men as patriarchal and oppressive by demonstrating instead the diverse and creative ways in which they seek love and fulfillment within marriage, family, and community life. The volume showcases their humanity, exploring how they enact sexuality, reproduction, parenting, familial caregiving, and civic engagements amid economic and political precarity, and seek to challenge broader systems of patriarchy and oppression while fulfilling their masculine commitments to the women, children, and families they love.
