Harem: The World Behind the Veil
by Alev Lytle Croutier
Publisher's Description
A personal and scholarly study of the harem as a cultural institution, containing many historical photographs and reproductions of the image of the harem in the history of art. "Absolutely marvellous! Through a blending of intensely personal accounts with historical fact, Croutier has unlocked a door in the human consciousness which has been hermetically sealed ever since history began. It is a classic."--Colin Wilson.
