Abstract

Book reviews Furthermore, both the introductory article, and the article on Pakistan point to the importance of understanding the impact of religion on women’s choices in ‘the social and private spheres of everyday lives’ (p. 844). While the articles in this special issue do a remarkable job of presenting a comprehensive national picture as well as highlighting key debates, the focus tends to be on the ‘public’ interplay of religion and politics at the macro-level. While no research project can cover all ground, this highlights the need for more research on the impact of religion and politics on gender relations at the micro-level of every day life. This special issue goes a long way towards filling a wide gap in the literature on gender, religion, and politics, one that the authors in this issue prove through their research, can no longer afford to be ignored. Furthermore, by presenting detailed case studies of countries representing a variety of regional and religious perspectives, the research underlines the importance of conducting grounded analyses of gender, religion, and politics within the historical, social, and political particularities of each context.
