MEDIA REVIEWS
The collection achieves its aim of accessibility. References to classical fiqh are adequate, while the application of legal principles to actual cases produces vivd examples of immediate relevance. * Journal of the American Academy of Religion *
This book is a refreshing overview of Islamic legal principles and new trends within Islamic societies. R.S. Khare has assembled a number of distinguished academics to discuss Islamic law, not as a homogenous entity, but rather in light of the reality: that Islamic law is multi-faceted, varied, highly regional and must be viewed in light of historical changes. R.S.Khare's collecion of essays is thought-provoking and well organized as well as containing a diversity of viewpoints. One need not be an expert in Islamic law to understand the essays. Perspectives on Islamic Law, Justice, and Society provides remarkable depth and insight into the theological, historical, sociological and cultural aspects of Islamic law as the historically changing interpretation of a set of divine principles. * American Journal of Islamic Social Studies *
Will be valuable for students and scholars of Middle Eastern studies, law, and history. * Discourse *
