Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
‘This book is important, and gives rewarding insight into a dynamic political structure in Islamic tribal society.’ – Andre Singer, The Times Literary Supplement

‘Mr Ahmed's strengths are his first hand experience of this subject, his knowledge of Islam and his intimacy with the languages concerned. To these he adds an excellent understanding of theoretical issues in contemporary social anthropology. The book is important for all social anthropologists, for students of South Asian societies, Islamic scholars and political scientists.’ – D.F. Pocock, British Book News
