x + 201 indexed pages. This book offers a new theoretical analysis of the relationship of religious beliefs to the structuring of gender hierarchies. Central to the book is an exploration of the politics of knowledge. The author maintains that history and the difference between cultures must take account of feminist critiques of knowledge which demonstrate that gender is the hidden factor essential to constructing a ‘racialised east and sexualised, eroticised orient’. An analysis of popular and scholarly travel writing illustrates how women and sexuality play a crucial role in the subordination of east to west. This theoretically sophisticated investigation of difference and the relations of power that govern their representation is a valuable contribution to gender theory. Julie Marcus is Senior Curator of Social History at the National Museum of Australia, Canberra. She has taught anthropology at Macquarie University, the University of New South Wales and the'University of Adelaide. In addition to her work in Turkey she has worked in Alice Springs and has published a number of essays on race, gender and Australian culture.
