In: Women Between the Tyranny of the Western System and the Mercy of the Islamic Law, Dr. al-Buti details womens rights and freedoms as provided for by Islam in the professional, social, political, religious, academic and cultural spheres. In addition, he deals in careful detail with specific questions revolving around issues such as the Quranic teaching on males and females inheritance, polygamy, husbands treatment of their wives, divorce and the veil. In so doing, the author presents us with a well-documented, forthright study capable of providing people in Western societies with a more accurate understanding of Islamic teachings as they pertain to women and their roles in society.
