Despite its subtitle, Maya Shatzmiller’s book reaches far beyond the territorial and chronological confines of 15th-century Granada. Her focus is not so much on Granada itself as on using the example of this region as an entry point for examination of the broader topic of women’s property rights in the pre-modern Islamic world and beyond...There is much to be contemplated here.—Olivia Remie Constable, Islamic Law and Society
