Taylor, Jane Jordan : Images from the Air

This book - the author/photographer's celebration of twenty years of aerial photography of Jordan - celebrates too the changing colours of the seasons, from the green of spring to the rich browns and ochres of summer, autumn and winter. It is a tribute not only to a land of outstanding beauty and fascinating history, but to the warmth and generosity of the Jordanian people. 160pp. (Book ref. 028185) £12.50

Sachedina, Abdulaziz A.: The Just Ruler (al-sultan al-'adil) in Shi'ite Islam : The Comprehensive Authority of the Jurist in Imamite Jurisprudence
UK: Oxford University Press, 1998 First edition, first printing, 230 x 150 mm paperback in near fine condition, 281pages including index, --------------"The Islamic state that was created under the rule of the Ayatollah Khomeini , following the 1978-79 Iranian revolution was the culmination of the Shi'ite Imans in general, on the basis of the doctrine that the Islamic jurist is best suited to rule with justice in an Islamic country. Arguing that this concept has no apparent parallel in Sunni Islam, this study explores its origins in the Sunni / Shi'ite schism, which took place after the death of the Prophet, and traces its evolution to the present day. Drawing on exhaustive research in the Sunni and Shi'ite Islamic libraries of Iran and Jordan, as well as discussions with leading jurors and scholars in Iran, the author presents the first in-depth analysis of an Islamic phenomenon of vital contemporary social and political significance." The author is Professor of Religious Studies at the University of Virginia. (Book ref. 1241) £18.00
