“Holmes-Elber’s meticulous ethnographic research and the way in which she relates her study to the recent debates in anthropology makes Daughters of Tunis significant not only to Middle Eastern Studies but for social sciences in general.”
— AFA Book Review
“Holmes-Eber has chosen a style of representation that most closely mirrors and animates the nature of the subject matter. The book is valuable and unique in its presentation of the intricacies and difficulties of the ethnographic process, integrating qualitative, as well as quantitative, methodology and data.”
— The Canadian Review of Sociology and Anthropology
