The Santillana Codes: The Civil Codes of Tunisia, Morocco, and Mauritania

Dan E. Stigall, "The Santillana Codes: The Civil Codes of Tunisia, Morocco, and Mauritania"
English | ISBN: 1498561756 | 2017 | 200 pages | PDF | 1192 KB

This book examines the Santillana Codes, legal instruments which form a distinct class of uniquely African civil codes and which are still in force today in a legal arc that extends from the Maghreb to the Sahel. Stigall presents the history of Santillana’s seminal legislative effort and provides a comparative analysis of the substance of those codes, illuminating commonalities between Islamic law and European legal systems.
