One of the most important developments in Muslim politics in
recent years has been the spread of movements calling for the
implementation of sharia or Islamic law. Shari?a Politics maps the
ideals and organization of these movements and examines their
implications for the future of democracy, citizen rights, and
gender relations in the Muslim world. These studies of eight
Muslim-majority societies, and state-of-the-field reflections by
leading experts, provide the first comparative investigation of
movements for and against implementation of sharia. These essays
reveal that the Muslim public's interest in sharia does not spring
from an unchanging devotion to received religious tradition, but
from an effort to respond to the central political and ethical
questions of the day.
