Interpretations of Law and Ethics in Muslim Contexts, Hardback Book

Interpretations of Law and Ethics in Muslim Contexts Hardback

Edited by Aptin Khanbaghi

Part of the Muslim Civilisations Abstracts series


200 abstracts of scholarly publications in non-English languages on Islamic law and ethics.

Law within Muslim societies is not uniform; even within Muslim majority regions it can be interpreted differently according to different denominations and legal traditions.

As law forms an integral part of normative social practice, reflecting the moral and ethical principles of a society, it is important to highlight the diversity of interpretations to better enable the study of law along with the ethical principles of a community.

This volume brings together some of the many unheard voices of scholars studying law and ethics in languages other than English.

It features 200 abstracts with bibliographical details in 3 languages (English, Arabic and Turkish) giving access to information about scholarly publications from Muslim contexts in the fields of law and Sharia.
