A comprehensive review of available scholarship on Arab families, detailing the major themes, methods, and case studies.

"A stunning collective achievement. This is a landmark in the social study of the Arab world—breathtaking in its encyclopedic coverage of past scholarship yet utterly visionary in the new directions it charts for the critical study of family in the Arab world. Expert contributors at the cutting edge of their fields redefine the core issues, moving us beyond tired clichés about culture to exhilarating appreciations of the dynamic ways ‘the Arab family’ lies at the nexus of the politics of states, economies, and meaning."—Lila Abu-Lughod, department of anthropology, Columbia University

"A monumental piece of scholarship, obviously years in the making. Undoubtedly, it will be an invaluable resource for anyone carrying out research or teaching on family and kinship in the Arab world."—Julie Peteet, professor of anthropology and director of the Middle East and Islamic Studies program, University of Louisville
