Product Description


'The importance of The Economy of Certainty to the study of Islamic legal theory is a tribute to the precision employed at its inception... In many disciplines, thirty-year-old research borders on being antique; however, when read today, Zysow's presentation retains both its originality and its authority... It has been read and reread by those working on us.u-l, and now, hopefully, those working in linked fields of enquiry will be able to benefit from Zysow's masterly account of the epistemological and theological factors which make us.u-l al-fiqh such adistinctive and absorbing theory of law.' (Robert Gleave, University of Exeter) 'It is no exaggeration to say that Zysow's contribution is the single most important work on Islamic legal theory (us.u-l al-fiqh) in any western language.' (Marc Herman, Center for Jewish Law and Contemporary Civilization)
