Reviews

"Adel SZ Abadeer's interdisciplinary analysis in Norms and Gender Discrimination in the Arab World provides a succinct framework for analyzing the normative structure of gender discrimination as well as its material impact on the status and well-being of women in primarily collectivist societies. This book balances out considerations of cultural relativism, universal human rights, and statistical research through an interdisciplinary lens, which provides a useful methodology for examining gender discrimination in other cultural contexts." (Lori Bable, Human Rights Review, Vol. 17, 2016)
