Reviews

'For any system of belief that vests ultimate authority in the past, slavery is a big moral problem... For several reasons, this dilemma is an acute one for Muslims, as emerges in [this] scholarly but digestible new book.' * The Economist *
'This insightful, courageous and comprehensively argued book is bound to constitute a new beginning. It is certain to be as widely debated as it is widely read. And we will all be all the better for it.' -- Sherman A. Jackson, King Faisal Chair of Islamic Thought and Culture, University of Southern California
'A prodigiously researched, provocatively argued, learned and multi-faceted treatment of a difficult and complex problem. One might not agree with all of Brown's conclusions, but the book will be a must-read for students and scholars of historical and contemporary Islam, as well as for anyone interested in slavery and its relationship to religion.' -- Bernard K. Freamon, Professor of Law Emeritus, Seton Hall University School of Law
