Some have argued that Lord Mansfield’s decision in James Somerset’s favor was a central, even epochal event, while others maintain that North Americans scarcely noticed the decision.

Member Publication: Islamic Law in Circulation

Dear colleagues, 

I am thrilled to announce the publication of my book Islamic Law in Circulation: Shafi'i Texts across the Indian Ocean and the Mediterranean as part of the “Cambridge Studies in Islamic Civilization”. Ever since I researched this topic and began to think about it as a book, this has been my dream series! Super happy that it is coming out there itself!
