«Review from previous edition Sensitive, highly informed and eminently readable, it offers a unique perspective that transcends the now trite arguments between the universalistic and cultural relativistic camps - in their evaluation of Human Rights in Muslim societies. It will undoubtedly prove beneficial, for these momentous times, as well as for the future.»

Hameed Agberemi, Research Fellow, Islam and Human Rights Programme, Emory University Law School, Atl
