The newly edited letters of Lady Montagu tell of her travels through Europe to Turkey in 1716, where her husband had been appointed Ambassador. She had befriended to Turkish women and witnessed the paradoxical freedoms conferred on Muslim women by the veil.
Her letters offer insights into the paradoxical freedoms conferred on Muslim women by the veil, the value of experimental work by Turkish doctors on inoculation, and the beauty of Arab poetry and culture.
