Críticas:

"El Feki has spent four years investigating an intriguing and potentially explosive subject: changing sexual attitudes and behavior in the Arab world. . . . A thoughtful study not to be treated as titillation."
--"Library Journal"
"A clear wakeup call."
--"Publishers Weekly"
"El Feki, with familial roots deep in Egypt, delves into a sensitive, rarely addressed topic in this "tour de force" on Arab life. . . . Mandatory reading for anyone seeking to truly know the Middle East, "Sex and the Citadel "should knock the doors off assumptions held dear by so many Westerners."
--"Booklist, "starred review
"Shereen El Feki has done something important, brave, and necessary. By investigating what sexual experiences and values are in the Arab world, rather than projecting views on them ideologically, she insists on our taking seriously and urgently major social issues--from cliterodectomy to adultery in a traditional context to passion itself--that are shrouded in myth, taboo, and disinformation. She has done a major service to those who care about feminism in this region, about human rights, about sexuality, and about the human condition."
--Naomi Wolf, author of "The Beauty Myth"
""Sex and the Citadel "captures the vibrancy of contemporary issues being faced by those living in Muslim societies today. El Feki brings to life the hopes, fears, and challenges of a wide range of individuals as they deal with sex, love, and relationships. There is much here to learn for both Muslims and non-Muslims. This book explores how views on contemporary life vary across different Muslim communities."
--Tewodros Melesse, director-general, International Planned Parenthood Federation
"A daring new study. El Feki embarks on her subject with healthy doses of humor and irony. She looks at the tensions between what is "halal" (permitted under Islamic law) and "haram" (forbidden) or "zina" (downright debauchery). She also discusses sex educ

"A fascinating survey of sex that is rich in detail. . . . Shereen El Feki is a brave woman." --"The Economist "
"Eminently readable. . . . Frank, nonjudgmental and unsentimental, eschewing the kind of stagey shockability that might have tempted a lesser writer." --"San Francisco Chronicle"
" "
"Conversational yet informed, witty without succumbing to frivolity." --"The Boston Globe"
"Important, brave, and necessary. . . . A major service to those who care about feminism in this region, about human rights, about sexuality, and about the human condition." --Naomi Wolf, author of "The Beauty Myth"
"An original portrait of the region's youth that sheds light on the condition of women, failing education and health systems, and the uses and abuses of religion to reinforce the status quo." --"Financial Times"
"Courageous and stirring . . . a supremely eye-opening book." --"The Chronicle of Higher Education
"
"A timely, thought provoking, and highly readable study. . . . Dr. El Feki tackles this topic with sensitivity and sophistication." --"New York Journal of Books
"
"The most revealing take on Arab sexuality in a thousand years." --"The Daily Telegraph" (London)
"Remarkable. . . . "Sex in the Citadel" should be celebrated--not least for freeing voices silenced by a mixture of taboo and political repression. It provides crucial oxygen for discussions that will need more airing in the long, conflicted years ahead." --"The Independent" (London)
""Sex and the Citadel" is a gentle lamp that sheds light on the darkest corners. . . . This is a brave, constructive and critical book that unites rather than divides, and attempts to understand rather than to compare and contrast." --"The""Literary Review"
"Fascinating." --"The Globe and Mail" (Toronto)
"A principled book, robustly educative and illuminating without consenting to the kind of vacant voyeurism that the intimate life veiled by Islam can provoke in unthinking outsiders." --"The Times Higher Education Supplement
"
"A bold, meticulously researched mini Kinsey Report, rich in anecdote and statistics. . . . Islam and faith are not incompatible with a healthier, more liberal attitude to sex, but rather an exciting component of the revolutions now taking shape." --"The Spectator
"
"Fascinating. . . . Fearless. . . . An impressively researched work of sociology." --"The Santa Fe New Mexican

"A riveting read, bound to provide interesting, if inappropriate, dinner table conversation for some time to come." --"The Daily Star" (Lebanon)

Reseña del editor:

A "Kirkus Reviews" Best Book of the Year
As the Arab Spring and its aftermath sweep streets and squares, parliaments and presidential palaces of the Middle East, Shereen El Feki an award-winning Canadian-Egyptian journalist has been looking at unrest a little closer to home: in the sexual lives of Arab men and women. The result is an informative, insightful, and engaging account of this sensitive and still largely secret aspect of Arab society.
Sexual attitudes and behaviors are shaped by politics and economics, religion and tradition, gender and generations not only a reflection of the conditions that led to the uprisings, but also a measure of hard-won reforms in the years to come. Highly personal, rich with original research and remarkable stories, "Sex and the Citadel" gives us unprecedented and timely insight into a part of the world that is changing before our eyes."
