This is the last of four talks, following his recent visit to the Middle East, in which Edward Atiyah is giving his impressions of evolution and revolution in the Arab world. ' Twenty years ago,' he says, ' it was impossible to see an unveiled Muslim woman in the streets of Damascus.' Earlier this year, in the same city, he attended a reception at which some 150 Muslim women, unveiled, mixed freely with, the male guests. This is but one instance of the important change in the social position of Muslim women about which Edward Atiyah speaks.
