  • Religion, Law and Traditionby Andrew Huxley

    Taylor and Francis 2012; US$ 54.95

    This book brings together two scholarly traditions: experts in Roman, Jewish and Islamic law, an area where scholars tend to be familiar with work in each area, and experts in the legal traditions of South and East Asia, which have tended to be less interdisciplinary.

  • Il giuramento di innocenza nel processo canonico medievaleby Antonia Fiori

    Vittorio Klostermann 2012; US$ 206.30

  • Narratives of Islamic Legal Theoryby Rumee Ahmed

    Oxford University Press 2012; US$ 99.99

    In the critical period when Islamic law first developed, a new breed of jurists developed a genre of legal theory treatises to explore how the fundamental moral teachings of Islam might operate as a legal system. Seemingly rhetorical and formulaic, these manuals have long been overlooked for the insight they offer into the early formation of Islamic... more...

  • The Origins of Islamic Lawby Yasin Dutton

    Taylor and Francis 2013; US$ 60.95

    If the Qur'an is the first written formulation of Islam in general, Malik's Muwatta' is arguably the first written formulation of the Islam-in-practice that becomes Islamic law. This book considers the methods used by Malik in the Muwatta' to derive the judgements of the law from the Qur'an and is thus concerned on one level with the finer details... more...
