The book tries to clear the notion that to interpret the Islamic concept of woman as, degradation of woman is to distort the actual issue. Islam has never asserted that woman is inferior to man: it has only made the point that woman is differently constituted. The prophet used a parable to explain the delicacy of women s nature, pointing out that they should be treated in accordance with their nature. Their delicate emotional constitution should always be borne in mind.

In this "unpretending story" published in 1867, Sarah Palmer, known to the Union soldiers she nursed during the Civil War as "Aunt Becky," tells simply and directly one woman's tale of war. Palmer, believed to have been the first woman to serve as a Union Army nurse, cared for countless sick, wounded, and dying soldiers during her three years of service. Said one soldier, "I never knew a woman so much thought of as she was by the boys - she never showed any partiality - we all got the same attention - officers no more than privates."

The author projects Senator Hillary Clinton as the first woman to win the White House. He delves into the machinery and into the managers and pundits who will have made it possible, to the delight of her supporters and to chagrin of her foes. The descriptions of President Clinton's first 100 days vindicates her success and renders -- this satirical representation -- credible.
