In Islamic Legal Thought: A Compendium of Muslim Jurists,
twenty-three scholars each contribute a chapter on a distinguished
Muslim jurist. The volume is organized chronologically and it
includes jurists who represent the formative, classical and modern
periods of Islamic legal thought. Each chapter contains both a
biography of an individual jurist and a translated sample of his
work. The biographies emphasize the scholarly milieu in which the
jurist worked-his teachers, colleagues and pupils, as well as the
type of juridical thinking for which he is best known. The
translated sample highlights the contribution of each jurist to the
evolution of both the method and the methodology of Islamic
jurisprudence. The introduction by the volume's three editors,
Oussama Arabi, David S. Powers and Susan A. Spectorsky, provides a
concise overview of the contents. Contributors include: Oussama
Arabi, Murteza Bedir, Jonathan E. Brockopp, Robert Gleave, Camilo
Gomez-Rivas, Mahmoud O. Haddad, Peter C. Hennigan, Colin Imber,
Samir Kaddouri, Aharon Layish, Joseph E. Lowry, Muhammad Khalid
