The Art of Islamic Banking and Finance Tools and Techniques for Community-Based Banking Yahia Abdul-Rahman The Art of Islamic Banking and Finance is a modern take on what it means to incorporate Islamic finance principles into everyday banking and investment techniques by introducing a new brand of banking for all people of all faiths: The Riba-Free (RF) banking. The author explores the concept of Riba (or interest) and how Islamic finance rules prohibit the use of interest in banking techniques. He discusses how this rule works, how it affects consumer behavior, and how it changes the role of the banker/financier. The Art of Islamic Banking and Finance also includes a discussion on the culture of Islamic finance today (the rules versus reality), as well as a number of case studies done in Malaysia and the UK. The book also covers joint ventures, asset and portfolio management, home mortgages, personal financing, and the equity markets (the fastest growing market within Islamic finance). Finally, the author shows the readers how to incorporate the Sharia into the American financing and banking systems while still obeying both Islamic and American laws. 9780470449936 • Cloth • 352 pages • Jan 2010 • £47.50 / €56.00/ $70.00

Islamic Money and Banking Integrating Money in Capital Theory Iraj Toutounchian
This book is the first serious attempt to study the affiliation between the current trend of globalization and the development of Islamic finance. It explores the potential convergence of Islamic and conventional finance as these systems continue their progress in designing and developing better risk-sharing structures and an expanded menu of financial instruments. The authors offer innovative thoughts on the future of Islamic finance in the wake of globalization. References and comparison of the historical financial globalization episode and today’s globalization are made. In addition, it also looks into the legal, institutional, governance, and financial preconditions that must exist for globalization and Islamic finance to succeed.
In Islamic Money and Banking, Dr. Iraj Toutounchian re-evaluates the principles of liberal capitalism. He shows how the global crises which have emerged from fluctuations in the success of this economic system throughout time could have been avoided if the underlying values of a truly humane economy had been taken into consideration. Rebuilding the framework of Islamic banking as a system which potentially can generate profit and keep national economies running to the good of a global economy, whilst at the same time being based on virtue and benevolence, Toutounchian provides a compelling case for the fundamental need to reconsider the global economy, going back to the fundamentals outlined centuries ago by Francis Hutcheson, Adam Smith and other theorists of liberal capitalism.

Marketing to the Muslim World Reaching 1.5 Billion Consumers Roy Haddad & Michael Maedel
Islamic Branding and Marketing Understanding the Global Muslim Consumer
From a marketing perspective, the growing influence of Islam is bound to have a widespread effect on Muslims’ consumption, yet many brands and their marketers are failing to connect with consumers who have combined disposable income in excess of $170 billion per year in the United States alone. Based on a study conducted by J. Walter Thompson, this groundbreaking work presents research findings that explore how Islam is reflected in the attitudes, behaviour, and preferences of Muslim consumers and identifies which brands and products they are more likely to favour, which ones they avoid, and which factors determine their choices.
