International Journal of Middle East Studies. Living Islam is a timely contribution at a conjuncture when both scholars and the English-speaking public want to know more about the ideological, social, and political background of the movement.

How and why have women come to play a central role in the political project of Islamic revivalism and in the power struggles between Islamic and secular forces in Turkey? In this innovative book Ayse Saktanber rejects approaches to this issue that ask what Islam means for the position of women, or see Muslim women as the ""reverse"" or the ""dark"" side of modernity.
