Narratives of Truth in Islamic Law by Baudouin Dupret
Book DescriptionThe truth, in legal terms, is the version of ""what happened"" which carries most authority. This original and thought-provoking book looks at how this narrative is constructed in Muslim societies, and which truths are privileged over others in constructing it. Looking at a range of contrasting case studies, from Sharia courts to inquiries into police abuse, this book explores how ordinary stories are transformed into authoritative truths.
