Editorial Reviews

Review


"Despite its complexity, the issue of the relationship between Shariah and Western legal systems is of prime interest to policymakers, jurists and Muslims living in the West...Shariah in the West opens the path for lively discussions on the place of Islam in the Western, multicultural democracies. It also raises the point made by Tariq Ramadan that Shariah is often interpreted in ways, inconsistent with its core principles and it needs serious scholarly reform and consensual modernisation"
--Lisa Kaaki, Arab News Blog


"Thought provoking and informative, it contains 16 essays from a global collection of expert contributors, most of them academics...If you wish to be better informed about Shari'a, then this is the book for you"
--Phillip Taylor MBE, Richmon Green Chambers

By Carol D. Rasnic on October 1, 2012
Format: Hardcover
This is a collection of detailed and well-sourced chapters outlining various elements of Sharia law. The authors are all learned academics, each who has thoroughly researched his area. I know Nicholas Aroney, one of the editors and athor of a chapter, but this does not influence my assesment of this work as a superb piece of legal research. It is extraordinarly informative, but not biased, and I will use two of the chapters for an undergraduate class in International and omparative Law.
