Practitioners and academics dealing with the Middle East can turn to the ""Yearbook of Islamic and Middle Eastern Law"" for an instant source of information on the developments over an entire year in the region. The Yearbook covers Islamic and non-Islamic legal subjects, including the laws themselves, of some 20 Arab and other Islamic countries. The publication's practical features include: articles on current topics; country surveys reflecting important new legislation and amendments to existing legislation per country; the text of a selection of documents and important court cases; a ""Notes and News"" section; and book reviews. Volumes 1 and 2 also offer a historical legal survey of each country. The Yearbook is edited by the Chairman and the Director of the Centre for Islamic and Middle Eastern Studies at SOAS in London. The leading experts in the field select each piece of information. Every library and university department aiming to cover Islamic law or the Laws of the Middle East should like to include this comprehensive publication. Volume 6, covering the legal developments in the year 1999, is forthcoming.
