Islamic law is applied in differing degrees by many countries across the world and especially in the Middle East. Considering the strategic and financial importance of these countries, taken as a whole, it is surprising how little academic writing exists in the West on either Islamic law or Middle Eastern law. Recently there have been signs of a burgeoning interest in Middle Eastern law.

However, traditional Islamic law remains a neglected area of study. Hussein Hassan makes a significant contribution by presenting a detailed survey of a crucially important area of Islamic law and by adopting an approach that gives priority to theory and to a comparative analysis with Anglo-American law theory.

Contracts in Islamic Law offers an invaluable resource to academics and researchers with a specific interest in Islamic law and to scholars whose main focus is Anglo-American contract law but who are interested in comparative law/theory.
