Review quote

"A welcome addition to the study of women and Islam.... It deals with the subject of Islam in classical and modern times, the four different schools of Islamic law, and how these affect Muslim women.... A work of high quality." - Choice; "[This] precise and academic study focuses on the historical and legal context for reform, and the methodology and extent of contemporary legal trends, particularly in Egypt and Pakistan. He examines primarily family law, including the rights of women in marriage, divorce, and inheritance." - Library Journal
