“This work of cultural anthropology centered on the Arab Muslim world is remarkable for its originality and by the scope of its information.”  —Hichem Djaït, author of Islamic Culture in Crisis Community involvement and leisure are rarely mentioned in mass media coverage of the Middle East and North Africa, yet leisure and community involvement form a part of life in the region, and are becoming increasingly significant as modernization becomes pervasive. This work seeks to examine how the interconnection of work and leisure operates in a culture far removed from North American or European traditions.
