Summary

Using gender and law in the political system of Jordan as a means of investigating broader issues surrounding the relationship between culture and political legitimacy, this volume offers an in-depth treatment of the laws that define, limit and expand women's rights. Arguing that gender issues aren't simply a 'special topic' in politics, but an indicator and symbol of the character of the political system as a whole, the significance of the politics of legitimacy as played out in issues of gender and law is not only about the content of policies and competition of interests, but about the power to determine the nature of the political system itself.
