This work addresses a problem central to all developing societies in the Third World, that of the transition from patriarchy to secularism, from traditional culture to modernity. Challenging some of the most cherished and widely held beliefs in the Arab world, the author develops a theory of social change which offers an understanding of the setbacks and distortions which have shaped this process of transformation.
