Synopsis

"Islamic law is the epitome of Islamic thought, the most typical manifestation of the Islamic way of life, the core and kernel of Islam itself," asserts renowned Islamic law scholar Joseph Schacht. At a time when Islamic fundamentalism is flourishing, the relation of religion to law-related behavior needs to be scrutinized. This volume considers Middle Eastern law as practiced by Muslims in a diversity of Middle East nations. Eight chapters, contributed by experts in the field, and a cogent introduction by Dwyer deal with the practical intricacies of personal status law and assess law in the public domain.
