The author describes the rise of Islamic fundamentalism and the West's response to it. Postmodernism has exposed the vested interests implicit in racist stereotyped and colonial images of Islam, particularly radical Islam. However, the author argues that regardless of the sophisticated argument of postmodernists and their suspicion of power, as an intellectual and political movement, postmodernism has put itself in service to power and the status quo. She brilliantly demonstrates how this has given rise to a neo-conservative feminism-or a new feminist orientalism, asking some hard questions of those who denounce the racism of Western feminism but uncritically embrace the Islamic identity of Muslim women.

As a religion, Islam has been demonized for its gender practices like no other. This book analyzes that Orientalism with particular reference to representations of Muslim women. It describes the real sexual politics of Islam, the rise of Islamic fundamentalism and the West's response to it. The author argues that, regardless of the sophisticated argument of postmodernists and their suspicion of power, postmodernism as an intellectual and political movement has put itself in the service of power and the status quo. She demonstrates how this trend has given rise to a neo-conservative feminism. She also asks questions of those who in denouncing the racism of western feminism have taken up an uncritical embrace of the Islamic identity of Muslim women. The book should interest those concerned about human rights, as well as for students and academics of women's studies, political science, social theory and religious studies.
