Description

This study of rural development in six North African nations addresses the issues surrounding poverty and landlessness. Providing an Islamic perspective on policy-making, the author describes the influence of Islam on development in these countries, and stresses the Islamic religious and moral revival as a major factor in policy-making toward reducing inequalities in income and land ownership.
