Editorial Reviews

Booknews
The application of Islamic Shari'a law differs significantly throughout the Islamic world, partly because of theological and legal differences and partly because of modifications of customary practices or state policy. An-Na'im (law, Emory U.) surveys the scope and manner of application of Islamic family law in sections organized by region. Each section provides a discussion of social, cultural, and historical background, with examinations of seclusion of women, marriage, divorce, polygyny, custody of children, inheritance, and land rights. Within each section there are legal profiles of each of the countries of the region treated, covering schools , constitutional status of Islamic law, court systems, relevant legislation, notable features and cases, law reporting system, and relevant international conventions.
