Summary
  • "Bringing together essays on topics related to Islamic law, this book is composed of articles by prominent legal scholars and historians of Islam. The authors cover a wide swath of issues, ranging from a detailed examination of Shi'i traditions governing legal interpretations about everyday affairs like prayer to the intellectual exchanges between Jewish and Muslim scholars of medieval Islamic tradition on works of logic. Taken together, these articles develop key inquiries concerning Islamic law in unique ways. They also exemplify a critical development in the field of Islamic Studies over the last few years: the proliferation of methodological approaches that employ a broad variety of sources to analyze social and political developments"--
