Chapter Summary

This index presents a list of court cases, laws ,names , terms and concepts that occur in this book titled Manichaean delirium: decolonizing the judiciary and Islamic renewal in Sudan, 1898-1985 . The book examines the duality of the Judiciary as an aspect of a colonial geography in which a colony is dramatically compartmentalized into an authoritative, European, modern space and a subordinated, traditional, native space. In this geography, a space is identified as either European, modern, and culturally correct, or native, traditional and on the wrong side of history. Native spaces like the sharia courts and their qadis thus 'do not only represent the absence of value, but also the negation of value'.

Keywords: colonial geography; decolonizing process; sharia courts
