Women in Muslim Family Law by Natana J. DeLong-Bas, John L. Esposito

The second edition of Esposito's text provides current coverage of the laws that govern Muslim women around the world. One of the merits of this book is its attention to the diverse interpretations of Muslim family law worldwide while maintaining a short, concise format useful for the undergraduate classroom and appealing as well to the interested general reader. The book covers the history and sources of Islamic law, its legal interpretation, the arguments for a legal methodology of reform, and a comparative perspective of current Muslim family law. Esposito, who teaches at Georgetown U., was assisted in this edition by one of his PhD candidates, Natana J. DeLong-Bas.

This book provided a very comprehensive resource for the study of Women's rights as it pertains to Muslim societies. It detailed the development of family law in various Muslim societies as it progressed through history and into the modern day. Very useful for students, teachers, and scholars!
