Book Review: Understanding Sharia (Islamic law) in a Globalised World

Understanding Sharia: Islamic Law in a Globalised World (2018)
Raficq S. Abdullah and Mohamed M. Keshavjee


Post 9/11, Sharia or Islamic law has peppered global discourses like never before in modern times. Negative statements about Sharia have hogged newspaper headlines leaving the public with little room but to conclude that it was a system of law that was unjust and backward.

This book is a must read for serious political analysts across the world. It will help them understand an important worldview that no longer remains hidden in the sands of the desert.
