Lieferbar innert 2 Wochen
BeschreibungThe popular image of the family and the court of law in Muslim societies is one of traditional, unchanging social frameworks. The author suggests a different view. This book challenges assumptions about family, courts of law, and the nature of modernity in Muslim societies against the backdrop of Haifa and Jaffa during the long 19th-century.
