    The introduction by Joseph is helpful as it surveys many important works on citizenship. The chapters on Gulf countries were rather disappointing. Soraya alTorki's chapter on women and citizenship in KSA suggests that the family can be a departure point for women's demands and change; a very problematic view, and heteronormative to say the least.

As for the chapter on Kuwait, the two scholars echo much of the liberal-urban discourse on power and politics, speaking of "desertization" and acquitting the dominant class from the authoritarian game played by the ruling family. Of course the chapter is also outdated, written before women got their rights, and is only helpful, i think, in surveying key events and laws about women and citizenship in kuwait, for those who do not already know this history. I particularly liked the chapter on Turkey in which Yesim Arat discusses how secularism is used as a popularist tool for the regime.
