Overview

Islam's Sacred Law is one of the most complex, detailed and comprehensive legal theories that Islam, as a Western Religion, has produced in its capacity as a doctrine of social justice. However, few available texts have dealt with the treatment of women under the actual system of justice that adheres to Islam's Sacred Law. This book fills this void by providing a much needed comprehensive study of the application of the Sacred Law to women under the Islamic Republic of Iran's justice system. It will be a fascinating guide to all those interested in comparative law, criminal justice and the sociology of law.
