A learned discourse, mainly of interest to scholars, on ideas of justice, duty, morality and law, as interpreted by Islamic savants since the time of the Prophet. The book is not directed to contemporary international issues but has an enlightening chapter on traditional Islamic views on relations among nations, and the discussion of the debate between modernists and revivalists provides a basis for understanding much of what is happening in the Muslim world today.
