Superman is an Arab: On God, Marriage, Macho Men and Other Disastrous Inventions

by Joumana Haddad
£8.99   paperback  The Westbourne Press (2012)

Superman is an Arab: On God, Marriage, Macho Men and Other Disastrous Inventions by Joumana Haddad This is not a manifesto against men in general. Nor is it a manifesto against Arab men in particular. It is, however, a howl in the face of a particular species of men: the macho species, Supermen, as they like to envision themselves. But Superman is a lie.
 
In this explosive sequel to I Killed Scheherazade, Joumana Haddad examines the patriarchal system that continues to dominate in the Arab world and beyond. From monotheist religions and the concept of marriage to institutionalised machismo and widespread double standards, Haddad reflects upon the vital need for a new masculinity in these times of revolution and change in the Middle East.
