Reviews

"This book could not be more timely. It provides a clear, lucid and scholarly guide to Shariah which should shatter the ignorant myths that surround it with an aura of evil. If we wish to win hearts and minds it is essential that we learn what is actually in them and not rely on what we imagine might be there. This eminently accessible introduction will help people to do just that." --Karen Armstrong, author of Islam: A Short History"... clear writing and solid scholarship make it [Shariah] a valuable reference work." - Publishers Weekly
