NOTICE: Religion and Law at Cambridge University Press

I recently received an email from Cambridge University Press, notting that '[r]eligion and law publishing at Cambridge is flourishing, and we have a range of excellent titles in the field to suit your area of study. This month, you can view our new and forthcoming publications, and get 20% discount off some our most popular titles.'

Some recent titles include:
  • Ovamir Anjum, Politics, Law, and Community in Islamic Thought: The Taymiyyan Moment (2012). This study reassesses the influence and philosophy of Ibn Taymiyya, one of the greatest medieval Islamic theologians.
  • Chandra Mallampalli, Race, Religion and Law in Colonial India: Trials of an Interracial Family (2012). Through a landmark court case in mid-nineteenth century colonial India, this book investigates hierarchy and racial difference.
  • Najam Haider, The Origins of the Shī'a: Identity, Ritual, and Sacred Space in Eighth-Century Kūfa (2012). This path-breaking book challenges earlier scholarship in its examination of the origins and development of the Shi'a.
'New and Forthcoming Titles' are available here and the full list of discounted titles here.
