520    "The diversity of interpretation within Islamic legal 
       traditions can be challenging for those working within 
       this field of study. Using a distinctly contextual 
       approach, this book addresses such challenges by combining
       theoretical perspectives on Islamic law with insight into 
       how local understandings impact on the application of law 
       in Muslim daily life. Engaging with topics as diverse as 
       Islamic constitutionalism, Islamic finance, human rights 
       and internet fatawa, Shaheen Sardar Ali provides an 
       invaluable resource for scholars, students and 
       practitioners alike by exploring exactly constitutes 
       Islamic law in the contemporary world. Useful examples, 
       case studies, a glossary of terms and the author's 
       personal reflections accompany traditional academic 
       critique, and together offer the reader a unique and 
       discerning discussion of Islamic law in practice"--Back
