*** This is a new, never read book. It has a few blemishes such as a crease or edge-wear on the cover, but it is still crisp and new on the inside and it makes for a great reading copy. ***

The work presented in this book had originally been written for the doctoral thesis. The work mainly centres around the two cities of Delhi and Lucknow believed to having islamic background. The chief aim of the work is to bring into light the extent and quality of changes which have occurred in the Muslim families within three generations and its effect on the status of the women. The placement of women in the society shifts along with the shift in the basic attitudes of the people an in the Indian context even the Muslim inspite of their rigorous and effective pattern of conduct have felt the wave of change in their home front. How far these outside factors have penetrated and affected the family life and role of the women are some of the questions posed by the author. The entire work being strictly substantiated by empirical data collected over the period of three years by the author herself adds to the richness of the book and enable the author to critically evaluate the status of contemporary Muslim women in context to their mother and grandmothers status. Hence, the work not only covers a wide area within which the women are shown to interact by it also has depth being substantiated by the datas on life style of the women above 50 years of age. Finally, the author attempts to picturize how the Muslim women placed within a framework chiefly controlled by religious dictions makes multi-directional effort to establish herself not only in her family but also outside it.
