Contents: In this book the author seeks to define the relationship between Islamic religion and state powers in predominantly Muslim countries. Dating as far back as the seventh century, he provides a historical review of the greatly varied role religion has played in administrative and judicial governance. He explains that social, economic and political conditions largely dictate how closely - if at all - religion and state powers are linked, leaving room for the prospect of representative forms of government in a majority-Muslim state.
