The Islamic School Of Law: Evolution, Devolution, And Progress, Distributed by Harvard University Press, 2005

KBP250.I84 2005

Mostly a selection of papers from the Third International Conference on Islamic Legal Studies, held May 4-6, 2000 at Harvard Law School, this volume exemplifies the innovative thinking on the concept of madhhab, the Islamic school of law. With producing a new history of Islamic law and legal institutions the goal, the papers cover the background to madhhab formation, the drive to establish legal authority, inter-and intra-madhhab differences, anti madhhab tendencies, the relationship between the madhhab and the State and the jurisdictional authorities of each , and the trend in modern times away from affiliations with madhhabs. Readers not well versed in the early development of the Islamic law and the madhhab should start with the preface of the book.

Port State Control, 2nd edition, LLP, 2004.

KZA1470.O93 2004

Although the prime responsibility for implementation of agreed standards rests with flag states and shipping companies, for years the maritime world has recognized the importance and the value of port State Control as a means of supporting and providing back-up to the role of flag States. The International Maritime Organization has encouraged the establishment of regional port State control organizations and agreements as a means of ensuring compliance of its conventions. This book is a comprehensive publication dealing with the full implications and regulations of port State control, including the most recent developments in this area. It covers not only the regional agreements on port State control and the European Union legislation on the subject, but also the background of the port State control process, its implications in practice and its effect on the International Safety Management Code and the classification societies. With the amendments and updates to the various agreements, procedures, and systems, and appendices and tables on all relevant legislation, this second edition indeed is a valuable source of reference.
