Moghadam's influential study of gender dynamics and social processes in the Middle East has been fully updated to reflect a decade of major changes - including shifts in development strategy and population policy, the rise of a reform movement in Iran incorporating both Islamic and secular feminists, the fundamentalist war on feminists in Algeria, and the rise and fall of the Taliban in Afghanistan.
