Islamic Law and SocietyJewish-Islamic comparative law is a relatively underdeveloped field...What few studies there are have tended to restrict themselves to determining Jewish antecedents for Islam, and even those normally focus on ritual, not law. Libson's study of the use of custom by the geonim and its connection to Islamic law is a novel and welcome corrective. This excellent study shows that the relationship between Jewish law and the Islamic law is much more complex than is normally assumed. Libson's familiarity with the ancient texts and current scholarship of both Jewish law and Islamic law is truly remarkable.
