Summary This is a book for students seeking an introduction to Islamic banking. It covers both the theory and the practice of Islamic banking in enough detail to make it easy to read and interesting. Difficult concepts are clearly explained without being overpowered by mathematics, and it is a "one-stop shop" for information on Islamic banking. With case studies taken from Islamic to mixed systems the development of Islamic banking is thoroughly explored, with history and analysis complementing the more theoretical issues like the prohibition of interest.
