Quick Overview

Taking a "law in action" approach to the study of Islamic law through a focus on the activities of the muhtasib in medieval Cairo and Fustat, this book paints a clear picture of the practice of Islamic law at the time. Connecting theory and practice, it sheds new light on the lived experience of the legal system.
