Description
The past president of Morgan Stanley International and a former Federal Reserve official, Richard Debs here analyzes the classical Islamic law of property based on the Shari'ah, tracing its historic development in Egypt and describing its integration as a source of law within the modern format of a civil code. Egypt's unique synthesis of Western and Islamic elements is the outcome of an effort to respond to national goals and requirements. Debs's analysis of Egypt's experience demonstrates how Islamic jurisprudence—developed over centuries to serve the needs of societies that flourished under the rule of law—can be sophisticated, coherent, rational, and effective. He also touches on issues that are common to all such societies that have adopted, either by choice or by necessity, Western legal systems.

"An extraordinary book by a remarkable man.... For those doing business in current-day Egypt, Arab societies, and Muslim countries, and for scholars working on social, economic, and cultural issues rooted in the Islamic sphere, this work is indispensable. Richard A. Debs combines the theoretical with the evolving, practical aspects of a field of law that has been too little studied for its impact on the Egyptian economy and society. He has produced a book of inestimable and lasting value."—Vartan Gregorian
