Performing Islam: Gender and Ritual in Iran (Women and Gender: the Middle East and the Islamic World) by Azam Torab
Brill Academic Pub | December 1, 2006 | English | ISBN: 9004152954 | 320 pages | PDF | 11 MB

"Performing Islam" describes and analyses a wide range of ritual activities marking, at times starkly contrasting, religious anniversaries and life course events in Iran today. Arguing that ritual performances in Iran are powerful forums where ideas develop, and where rules, symbols and discourses are contested, the volume elucidates social, cultural and political processes, but in particular the values and beliefs underpinning gender constructions in a rapidly changing complex society.

Seven years in the making, Kramer has conjured what just might be his greatest CD ever—a brilliant tribute to the Jewish composers who made the legendary Brill Building in Times Square one of the centers of popular music songwriting for decades. From Bacharach to Carole King, Neil Diamond, Leiber and Stoller and Doc Pomus, these are the songs that made performers into superstars. Deeply personal yet wholly universal, Kramer captures all the poignancy and humor of these timeless classics. Welcome to The Brill Building!
