(p.iii) The Administration of Justice in Medieval Egypt

The Introduction examines the largely ignored question of to what extent Muslim law was applied in medieval Muslim states and whether its precepts indeed governed the life of individuals and the conduct of society. The Introduction also provides a unifying framework for the book and presents topics, which are directly relevant to the discussion of the administration of justice. The inquiry is also heavily influenced and informed by the progress that has been made in recent decades in the study of early Islam.
