The introduction of Western-type legal systems partially led to a transposition of characteristics of centrality, individualism and secularism in the Middle East. This interdisciplinary book focuses on the relationship between the law and the concept of the person in modern Arab societies. It directly addresses the questions of continuities, transformations and ruptures of such notions, revealing social and historical dynamics.
