Women in Islamic Biographical Collections
By:"Ruth Roded"

Briefly profiles women mentioned in 40 collections of biographies compiled from the ninth century through the 1980s, and draws conclusions about the importance given to women within their own time and by later historians. The chapters cover companions of the Prophet, the next generation, scholars, mystics, and women's roles in historical and contemporary collections. A source of information in itself, but also a valuable bibliographic reference for scholars of Islam or women. Annotation copyright by Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
