About this book


The global Islamic resurgence of the last two decades has spawned parallel intellectual efforts to articulate an alternative Islamic way of life. This volume critically assesses much of what is said to be Islamic economics today - its theories, assumptions, concepts and the alternatives it claims to offer. While critical of much of contemporary Islamisation and the interests such economic policies protect, the current relevance of progressive policy alternatives inspired by Islamic economic morality is also analyzed.
