Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Examines Shanghai both as a real city and an imaginary locale, from diverse cultural and disciplinary perspectives. Revealing/Reveiling Shanghai provides international and interdisciplinary perspectives on representations of Shanghai, a contested location within political discourse and cultural imagination. Shanghai's complex history as a quasi-colonial city, and its contradictory identity as the birthplace of Communist China and the epitome of twenty-first-century capitalism, make it an especially fascinating subject. Contributors examine representations of Shanghai in film, art, literature, memoir, theater, and mass media from the past one hundred years. They address the ways in which texts from the late twentieth and early twenty-first centuries have rewritten past and present Shanghai to reflect our own wishes and anguishes, show how the city resists static interpretations, and challenge notions of authentic representation and identity. By revealing and questioning persistent stereotypes and constructed versions of East and West, the essays offer diverse views so as to create a genuine exchange with contemporary global audiences. A wide variety of texts are discussed, including the films Street Angel (1937) and The White Countess (2005), and the novels The Song of Everlasting Sorrow (1996) and Shanghai Baby (1999). Lisa Bernstein teaches literature and women's studies at the University of Maryland University College and is the editor of (M)Othering the Nation: Constructing and Resisting National Allegories through the Maternal Body. Chu-chueh Cheng is Professor of English at National Chung Hsing University, Taiwan, and author of The Margin without Centre: Kazuo Ishiguro.

Book excerpt: Silencing Shanghai examines the paradoxical and counterintuitive contrast between Shanghai’s emergence as a global city and marginalization of the Shanghai dialect. The endangerment of the vernacular exposes how state-sponsored social exclusion silences a significant voice of the people and shakes the linguistic foundation of the local identity.

Book excerpt: In modern Egypt, the pace of Islamic resurgence has increased as in other Muslim societies. Throughout the twentieth century, Egyptian women have fought fiercely for political participation and for legal and educational reform to improve their status. To many of them, the adoption of a new form of the veil seemed retrogressive and ominous. This book explores the history of Muslim women and the debates over gender which have developed since the golden age of Islam. It considers the opinions, goals, and ideals of fifty Egyptian women, veiled and unveiled and compares their views to the gender ideology of the contemporary Islamists. Women’s social backgrounds are examined in the context of the Egyptian state and its social policies.
