The "home" is a quintessentially quotidian topic, yet one at the center of global concerns: Consumption habits, aesthetic preferences, international trade, and state authority all influence the domestic sphere. For middle-class residents of late-nineteenth- and early-twentieth-century Beirut, these debates took on critical importance. As Beirut was reshaped into a modern city, legal codes and urban projects pressed at the home from without, and imported commodities and new consumption habits transformed it from within. Drawing from rich archives in Arabic, Ottoman, French, and English—from advertisements and catalogues to previously unstudied government documents—A Taste for Home places the middle-class home at the intersection of local and global transformations. Middle-class domesticity took form between changing urbanity, politicization of domesticity, and changing consumption patterns. Transcending class-based aesthetic theories and static notions of "Westernization" alike, this book illuminates the self-representations and the material realities of an emerging middle class. Toufoul Abou-Hodeib offers a cultural history of late Ottoman Beirut that is at once global in the widest sense of the term and local enough to enter the most private of spaces.

Family Life in the Ottoman Mediterranean

In writings about Islam, women and modernity in the Middle East, family and religion are frequently invoked but rarely historicized. Accessibly written and based on a wide range of local sources, this book shows that there is no such thing as a typical Muslim or Arab family type. Rather, it reveals dramatic differences, even within the same cultural zone, in the ways that family was understood, organized and reproduced. By concentrating on family life in the Ottoman Empire, in particular in what is now Lebanon and Palestine, Beshara B. Doumani skilfully uses examples of family waqf endowments, lawsuits between kin, and other cases from the shari'a courts to reconstruct the stories and priorities of ordinary individuals. Through his examination of the transformations of family, property and gender regimes, Doumani offers a groundbreaking examination of the lives of ordinary people. By doing so, he challenges prevailing assumptions about modern Middle Eastern societies.
