Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
“…an enormously important study of early Islamic law that does for the Mālikī school what has not been achieved for any of the other schools, namely, providing a systematic analysis of its foundational texts of positive law.”
Ahmed El Shamsy in Ilahiyat Studies 5.1 (2014), pp. 126-131.
