"A must-read not only for historians of the modern Middle East, but for historians of family law and life more generally."—American Historical Review

"Modernizing Marriage is likely to be the definitive history of marriage in Egypt for a very long time."—Journal of Middle East Women’s Studies

"[Cuno’s] careful research and thoughtful analysis make Modernizing Marriage not only an essential read for scholars of Egyptian legal history and Egyptian women but also instructive for those exploring questions about the law, family, and global flows of influence in other times and places."—Journal of Social History

"This book provides a glimpse into an area difficult for western feminists to access and as such serves as a valuable introduction and starting point for expanding our perspectives."—Journal of Women’s History
