"...useful for some purposes of reference and basic instruction by students of Islamic jurisprudence...." Aziz Al-Azmeh, History of Religions
"...a lucid, nuanced, and sophisticated study based on extensive reading in the sources. A History of Islamic Legal Theories provides an excellent starting-point to follow these important debates that will help determine the future direction of Muslim societies." David S. Powers, Middle East Quarterly
"For over a decade, Wael B. Hallaq has written articles that qualify him to write the only comprehensive introduction to the science of usul al-fiqh in English. He has successfully exposed the intracacies and complexities of this science in a way that will achieve his declared aim of introducing Islamic legal theory both to students of Islam adn to those unfamiliar with Islamic tradition." Murteza Bedir, MESA Bulletin
"Hallaq evidently loves a good argument, and this book is no exception. He states his claims forthrightly, challenging the rest of the field to respond. There is no doubt that this book will generate responses for years to come, and that the ensuing discussion will move the study of the theoretical underpinnings of Islamic law to a new level." Middle East Journal
"The author of this volume, who is an important scholar of Islamic law, has fashioned a succinct and lucid entree to a complex and difficult subject." Religious Studies Review
"...this book offers reading of great value for anyone curious about the future--as well as the past--of Sunni jurisprudence." Earl Finbar Murphy, H-Net Reviews
Wael B. Hallaq has already established himself as one of the most eminent scholars in the field of Islamic law. In this book, first published in 1997, the author traces the history of Islamic legal theory from its early beginnings until the modern period. Initially, he focuses on the early formation of this theory, analysing its central themes and examining the developments which gave rise to a variety of doctrines. He concludes with a discussion of modern thinking about the theoretical foundations and methodology of Islamic law. In organisation, approach to the subject and critical apparatus, the book will be an essential tool for the understanding of Islamic legal theory in particular and Islamic law in general. This, in combination with an accessibility of language and style, will guarantee a readership among students and scholars and anyone interested in Islam and its evolution.
