New series Premodern Crime and Punishment (Amsterdam University Press)

Dear colleagues,


please allow me to bring to your attention a new monograph series dedicated to the comparative study of premodern crime and punishment, of which I'm one of the (sub-)editors. This series may be of interest to colleagues working on Islamic legal (penal) history, including recent PhDs.




In case of interest, feel free to contact me directly at C.R.Lange[at]uu.nl


Best wishes,

Christian Lange
