Description from the publisher:
Muslim Economic Thinking: A Survey of Contemporary Literature is a masterly survey of the Muslim economic thinking in the twentieth century in three major languages of Arabic, Urdu and English. In a precise but incisive and comprehensive statement, it captures both the spirit and substance of Muslim thought on modern economic issues. The book is thus an invaluable aid to research, measuring what has been accomplished as well as stimulating what needs to be done, setting an agenda for future research, which every scholar interested in economics would find interesting and useful. Originally produced for the First International Conference on Islamic Economics held in Makka in February, 1976, and subsequently revised, it is included in the Studies in Islamic Economics (Leicester, 1980). It is now being reproduced in a book form to reach a wider audience.
