Innovation in Islam: Traditions and Contributions
To cite this publication: Mehran Kamrava, ed., Innovation in Islam: Traditions and Contributions (Berkley, CA: University of California Press, 2011).
Focusing on the ways and means through which the teachings of Islam have been produced and perpetuated over time, the contributors investigate such areas as the arts and letters, jurisprudence, personal status, hermeneutics and epistemology, and Muslims’ perceptions of the self in the modern world.
