Haider Ala Hamoudi Publishes Book Review of Andrew March's Islam and Liberal Citizenship

Professor Haider Ala Hamoudi has published a book review of Islam and Liberal Citizenship: The Search for an Overlapping Consensus (Oxford, 2009), by Andrew F. March, at 26 J.L. & Religion 387 (2010-2011).  From the Introduction:
Professor Andrew March has provided a rare, much needed, rigorous and admirable foray into a subject on which there has been much discussion, but not much of it very good. March is ideally suited to the task of discussing the compatibility of Islam with the demands of political liberalism, as an Oxford trained political scientist who has devoted years of his life to the study of that vast body of norms and rules derived from Muslim sacred text known as the shari'a. There are few who are able to discuss Islam, or political liberalism for that matter, as thoroughly as March, and all of us interested in the subject should be grateful for the contribution he has provided.
