Chapter Summary

This front matter section of the book titled The Sanhūrī Code, and the emergence of modern Arab civil law contains acknowledgments. This book argues that legal and social research has hitherto failed to reveal one of the most comprehensive reforms of modern Egyptian and Arab law-the New Egyptian Civil Code of 1949, with its 1149 articles. This work embodied a codification of all spheres of the civil life of Egyptians property, contracts and damages, but excluding the laws of personal status. The book attempts to grant the New Code and its proper place in historical, social and legal discourse, and to anchor it in the context of the social, economic and legal transformations evidenced in Egypt during the 1930s and 1940s, drawing on this background to learn more about the Code, and vice versa.
