SHARIA INCORPORATED A Comparative Overview of the Legal Systems of Twelve Muslim Countries in Past and Present Edited by JAN MICHIEL OTTO

Jan Michiel Otto (ed.)

Sharia Incorporated A Comparative Overview of the Legal Systems of Twelve Muslim Countries in Past and Present

The aim of Sharia Incorporated is to provide unbiased and contextual information about a topic that has of late been hijacked by politics in the Muslim world as well as in the West. Sharia Incorporated, written by laudable international scholars, is an ambitious study of the incorporation of Islamic law traditions into national legal systems. The book also explores the sensitive topic of ‘Western’ human rights and other rule of law standards in a Muslim world. It provides an in-depth analysis of the role of sharia in the historical and legal formation of twelve representative Muslim states, with a unique comparison of key issues raised by the ‘Islamic awakening’ of recent decades. In the preface Jan Michiel Otto goes to the heart of the prevailing environment in which Western discourses tend to oversimplify the substance and effect of Islam and sharia.

Nizami: A Key to the Treasure of Hakim In this â&#x20AC;&#x153;Keyâ&#x20AC;? thirteen eminent scholars focus on different aspects of the Khamsa, which is a collection of five long poems written by the Persian poet Nizami. Topics are mysticism, art history, comparative literature, science, and philosophy. It constitutes a significant development in the field of Nizami-studies, and more general, of Persian literature. It shows how classical Greek knowledge mingles with the Persian past and the Islamic culture in Nizamiâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s world.

Prof.dr. Johann Christoph BĂźrgel is professor emeritus in Islamic Studies at Bern University and has received several prizes for his Nizami-translations.

Abu â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Abdollâhâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Jafar ibn Mohammad Rudaki (c. 880 CE-941 CE) is widely regarded as â&#x20AC;&#x153;the father of Persian poetryâ&#x20AC;?, for he was the first major poet to write in New Persian language. This book presents Rudaki as the founder of a new poetic aesthetic, which was adopted by subsequent generations of Persian poets. Rudaki is credited with being the first to write in the rubâi form; and many of the images we first encounter in Rudakiâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s lines have become staples of Persian poetry. Sassan Tabatabai (Iran 1967) teaches Persian and the Humanities at Boston University. Tabatabai is a poet, translator and editor.

19th Century Persian Treatise Introducing Western Codified Law One Word â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Yak Kaleme was one of the first treatises in the Middle East to demonstrate that Islam is compatible with modern western forms of government, and specifically that sharia principles can be incorporated in a codified law comparable to that found in Europe. Unlike many fellow Oriental travellers, he observed that European dominance was not derived from a few technological advances, but primarily from the organisation of society. In One Word, the author argues that the principles underlying constitutional government can be found in Islamic sources. One Word was a significant text during the Iranian Constitutional Revolution of 1906, but its message is relevant today.

Agreement Restrictions in Persian is the first comprehensive attempt to tackle the issue of verbal agreement in the Persian language from a cross-linguistic point of view. Unlike the previous analyses, which consider the Experience as the subject, it is argued that the psychological state is the subject of the sentence. The results not only contribute to better understanding of Persian syntax, but also have important implications for grammar theory. Dr. Anousha Sedighi is an assistant professor of Persian at Portland State University. In 2010 she was awarded a grant from Roshan Cultural Heritage Institute to complete her first-year Persian language textbook and to organize a film series entitled â&#x20AC;&#x153;On Iranian Women, By Iranian Women.â&#x20AC;?

Pots, Farmers and Foragers How pottery traditions shed a light on social interaction in the earliest Neolithic of the Lower Rhine Area Bart Vanmontfort, Leendert Louwe Kooijmans, Luc Amkreutz, Leo Verhart

In Pots, Farmers and Foragers the contributing 24 European scholars show with evidence a new synthesis of the complex interaction of the communities of the western part of the North European Plain during early Neolithic. In the study of earliest stage of neolithisation pottery plays a key role. The most advanced northwestern settlement in the expansion of the central European Linear Pottery culture during the second half of the sixth millennium B.C. is to be found in the Lower Rhine Area. At the same time this is the northernmost extension of the synchronic and enigmatic pottery groups La Hoguette and Limburg. This volume convincingly states that pottery and its associated habits were among the first of the many new societal aspects to be adopted by neighbouring foraging communities. Bart Vanmontfort is lecturer in prehistory at Leuven University, Belgium. Leendert P. Louwe Kooijmans is emeritus professor in prehistory at Leiden University. Luc Amkreutz is curator prehistory of the Netherlands National Museum of Antiquities, Leiden. Leo Verhart is curator archaeology and early history of the Limburgs Museum, Venlo.

A Timeless Vale

Noriyuki Shirai’s research on lithic artefacts used by the Epipalaeolithic hunter-fishers and Neolithic famer-herders in the Fayum gives a clue as to the mobility and residential strategy of the Fayum people and their time and labour investments in tool production. The Neolitic famer-herders ( 6th C.B.C.E.) relied heavily on hunting and fishing. Lithic evidence, as Shirai proves, suggests that the Fayum people were not nomadic but were tethered to lakeshores.

This thesis aims to provide a better understanding of the neolithisation process in the Dutch wetlands by means of the reconstruction of the natural vegetation, human impact, plant use and cultivation practises at the time of the Late Mesolithic, the Swifterbant culture and the Hazendonk group.

This volume presents an overview of Dutch cultural and archaeological activities in Jordan during the last fifty years.

The Archaeology of the First Farmer-Herders in Egypt explores how and why farming and herding started in a particular time period in a particular region of Egypt. The earliest Neolithic farming in combination with herding in Egypt is known in the Fayum, which is a large oasis with a permanent lake in the Egyptian Western Desert. Farming and herding started at the transition from the Epipalaeolithic to Neolithic in the 6th millennium cal.BC owing to the arrival of Levantine domesticates. The Neolithic farmer-herders in the Fayum relied heavily on hunting and fishing, which had been the major subsistence activities since the Epipalaeolithic period. There are no remains of substantial dwellings to indicate that these farmer-herders lived a sedentary way of life. Previous researchers have thus asserted that the Fayum people were nomadic and moved seasonally. Noriyuki Shirai’s research on lithic artefacts used by the Epipalaeolithic hunter-fishers and Neolithic farmer-herders in the Fayum gives a clue as to the mobility and residential strategy of the Fayum people and their time and labour investments in tool production. Lithic evidence suggests that the Fayum people were not nomadic but were tethered to lakeshores. The introduction of farming and herding would not have taken place in the Fayum without a lakeshore-tethered if not fully sedentary way of life. But the success of a farming-herding way of life in the Fayum would not have been possible without the reorganisation of mobility, which led to decreased moves of residential bases and increased logistical moves of individuals. Lithic evidence also suggests that the Fayum People kept exerting special efforts to make farming and herding reliable subsistence and to maximise the yield. The introduction of farming and herding in the Fayum would have been a solution to mitigate growing population/resource imbalances when the climate became drier and more people had to aggregate around permanent water sources in the 6th millennium cal.BC.

backlist selection: www.LUP.nl How did humans evolve? Why do we have such large brains, and how can we afford the high energetic costs? The contributors to this volume focus on the suggestion that ‘we are what we eat’, and that diet played a role in the evo-

characteristics. The volume draws together results from a wide range of disciplines, for example, studies of foraging activities of hunter-gatherers compared with primates, the energy requirements of extinct hominins, the energetics of reproduction for female hominins, evidence for hominin diets from bone chemistry, and the archaeology of Neandertal foraging behaviour. Perhaps more importantly, this volume shows that a focus on diet provides an excellent

evolution. Wil Roebroeks is professor of Palaeolithic

Scholarship can be offensive to believers, as conflicts since the time of Ibn Rushd (depicted on the cover), Galileo and Spinoza have shown. Recent examples include the expulsion of Abu Zayd from Egypt (told here by Abu Zayd), political criticisms of Danish scholars of religion in the wake of the cartoon crisis, and the impact of ‘9/11’ on academic freedom. Studies on religion may also be appropriated by believers, to strengthen or reinvent their identity. The study of religion is intimately related to academic and religious freedom. The training of Muslim clergy is one area of contemporary importance. Grand Mufti Ceric of Bosnia discusses the situation in Bosnia. A unique appendix in Arabic and English presents the founding documents of the oldest Islamic institution in Europe, the Ghazi Husrev-bey madrasa in Sarajevo founded in 1537. Van Koningsveld analyses in detail training programs for imams set up by nazi-Germany. An appendix has original German material from the debriefing report by the main SS officer responsible. Further essays consider current developments in the Netherlands, Austria, Italy and elsewhere in Europe.
