Product description

Review

After much waiting a refreshing book on the subject of interest has finally appeared. In the din of confusing voices for and against interest, this is an enjoyably frank treatment of the subject ... I recommend it as compulsory reading for all those interested in the subject of interest and the Islamic position on money and banking (1st edition review). --Muhammad Akram Khan, Muslim World Book Review, October 1999

This is a well-researched, practical and comprehensive book on the flaws of the conventional fractional reserve banking system based on riba (interest). Some background in finance is assumed, and yet it is accessible to the lay-person who wants to understand the history of money, the eradication of gold as a legal tender and store of wealth, why certain Islamic financial products are in the early stages of implementation, and why others are not fully Sharia'a compliant yet (2nd edition review). --M. Syed Hoque, American Journal of Islamic Finance, April 2004
