Crucially, political office and representation came to be formally shared along confessional lines, and the privileges of power are distributed accordingly.

By bringing together an in-depth analysis of Lebanon's state-sponsored sharia courts with a look at the wider world of religious instruction, this book highlights the breadth of the sharia and the complexity of the contexts within which it is embedded"--"@en ;
