What Is Veiling?

Book focuses on Islamic practice though reminds that it is not just practiced by that faith. For instance, the covering of women's heads is instructed in Pauline epistles, reflecting common cultural practice at the time. Same today; often more cultural than religious. Middle chapters drag but last chapter on art/poetry/etc. ended on good note. Useful book.
