Narratives of Truth in Islamic Law by Baudouin Dupret

Book Description

The 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.

Law at Work by Baudouin Dupret Law at Work, Hardback (August 2015)

This collection of empirical studies addresses many questions about the conduct of law in practice by treating law as a relationship between legal institutions and an external society.

Ethnographies of Islam by Baudouin Dupret Ethnographies of Islam, Paperback (September 2013)

Islam is stereotypically presented as a monolithic civilisation that has stifled the emergence of cultural pluralism and individual freedom. In contrast, this volume showcases the diversity and plurality of Muslim societies. It includes case studies on rituals and symbols in Syria, Tunisia, Damascus, Algeria, Britain, Pakistan, Brazil and Lebanon.

Adjudication in Action by Baudouin Dupret Adjudication in Action, Hardback (October 2011)

Describes the moral dimension of judicial activities and the judicial approach to questions of morality, observing the contextualized deployment of various practices and the activities of diverse people who, in different capacities, find themselves involved with institutional judicial space.
