Keywords:Law, Middle East, macrosociology, macrohistory, Islam, Derecho, Oriente Medio, macrosociología, macrohistoria
AbstractThe understanding of law in the Middle East requires not simply different disciplinary perspectives but bringing disciplines into dialogue with each other. It also requires analysis that crosses historical periods in order to understand legal systems as ones that develop over time based on longstanding traditions and earlier transformations, not simply European intrusion. We present a series of analyses by scholar who, while anchored in their own discipline, historical focus, and geographical specialization consciously work to address a broad social scientific audience.
La comprensión del derecho en Oriente Medio no sólo requiere perspectivas disciplinarias diferentes, sino también poner esas disciplinas en diálogo mutuo. También requiere un análisis que atraviese períodos de la Historia para entender sistemas jurídicos como aquéllos que se desarrollan en el tiempo basados en largas tradiciones y transformaciones anteriores, no solo en la intrusión europea. Presentamos una serie de análisis de expertos que, aun enraizados cada uno en su disciplina, enfoque histórico y especialización geográfica, trabajan conscientemente para dirigirse a una audiencia científica socialmente amplia.
