    Book details

Fundamentalism, as the word implies, is about getting back to the basics, and for Americans this has meant getting back to God's word as proclaimed in the Bible. The essays in this book examine the connection between fundamentalism and gender. Looking in detail at Islam, Hinduism, the New Religions of Japan, and American Christianity, they reveal their control over women--their sexuality, reproductive power and social and economic roles.

`this book is most welcome for that fact that there have not been many serious studies on this subject'Free Press Journal'Hawley has edited a book of scope and value, all the more interesting for its inclusion of dialectical opinions. Although a scholarly work, it is down to earth, and as such may throw light on those voices that are now clamouring within and around many individuals.'Ranjabati Sircar, Telegraph'...good reading, because it illustrates thought in progress...On the fundamentalism debate itself, this book contains many relevant passages which are helpfully indexed...' (Werner Menski,Bulletin of the School of Oriental & African Studies, Vol.61, 1)
