Nathan Brown's penetrating account of the development and operation of the courts in the Arab world is based on fieldwork in Egypt and the Gulf. The book addresses important questions about the nature of Egypt's judicial system and the reasons why such a system appeals to Arab rulers outside Egypt. From the theoretical perspective, it also contributes to the debates about liberal legality, political change and the relationship between law and society in the developing world. It will be widely read by scholars of the Middle East, students of law and colonial historians.

Can notions of ‘the Rule of Law’, ‘Human Rights’ and ‘judicial process’ as understood in the West be made to work in the Middle East and the rest of the Islamic world? Since the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, much attention has been focused on an international standard on human rights applicable to all cultures. But is this standard observed by Middle Eastern and Islamic governments and enforced by their judiciaries? This book examines the predicament of the Muslim world. Are Islamic principles compatible with ‘the Rule of Law’ and ‘Human Rights’ as defined by the West?_x000D_ _x000D_ In this country-by-country survey a range of distinguished scholars, practitioners and judges explore how the concepts of ‘the Rule of Law’ and ‘Human Rights’ are being debated and applied in the changing social and political climates of Egypt, Iraq, Kuwait, Jordan, Palestine, Yemen, Saudi Arabia, Afghanistan and Pakistan.

Which way will Egypt go now that Husni Mubarak's authoritarian regime has been swept from power? Will it become an Islamic theocracy similar to Iran? Will it embrace Western-style liberalism and democracy? Egypt after Mubarak reveals that Egypt's secularists and Islamists may yet navigate a middle path that results in a uniquely Islamic form of liberalism and, perhaps, democracy. Bruce Rutherford draws on in-depth interviews with Egyptian judges, lawyers, Islamic activists, politicians, and businesspeople. He utilizes major court rulings, political documents of the Muslim Brotherhood, and the writings of Egypt's leading contemporary Islamic thinkers. Rutherford demonstrates that, in post-Mubarak Egypt, progress toward liberalism and democracy is likely to be slow. Essential reading on a subject of global importance, this edition includes a new introduction by Rutherford that takes stock of the Arab Spring and the Muslim Brotherhood's victories in the 2011-2012 elections.

This book provides readers with a fresh analysis of the Arab state by using a new theoretical framework: hybrid sovereignty. Hybrid sovereignty is used as an analytical tool to explain the survival of traditional patterns and forms of authority within the formal modern statehood. The author looks at various issue areas to make his argument: citizenship, the issue of minorities, electoral engineering, the failure of central rule, tribalism, and the lack of impersonal bureaucratic mechanism. He concludes that based on the problems at state-society level boundaries of statehood, the Arab state can be identified as hybrid-sovereign.
