The book contains 41 short essays by various authors about important terms of the Islamic political theory, such as siyasa, dawla, dustur, dimu­q­ra­tiyya, istibdad, qabila, and so on. Through these terms the book gives the outlines of Islamic political theory. The authors often point out the striking diffe­rence observable in the respec­tive meanings and uses of the Arabic terms and their Euro­pean equi­va­l­ents, due to the under­lying diffe­rence of political theo­ries and tradi­tions.
