Description - A History of Islamic Law by Noel J. Coulson
This reissue describes the complete history of Islamic jurisprudence from its origins, through the Medieval period, to modern times. The work demonstrates how, although religious law lies at the heart of Islamic culture, Islamic states have recently modified the law to meet society's changing values. The author considers the problems of such legal reform, referring to a wide variety of substantive legal rules and institutions.
