Chapter Summary

This section presents a list of names, terms and concepts that occur in the book The Sanhūrī Code, and the Emergence of Modern Arab Civil Law (1932 to 1949). The book shows that the New Code, as the product of the sometimes Utopian philosophy of ʿAbd Al-Razzāq Sanhūrī, was consciously formulated on the foundation of a firm and comprehensive social perception relating to the unique environment and absorptive capacity of Egyptian society, and with the goal of engendering a change in the values embodied in the social structure of the Egyptian collective: introducing a new dimension of value-based morality in Egyptian law and social structure; encouraging at one and the same time both the weak and the strong; and promoting legal and social mobility in the apparently stagnant environment of polarized Egyptian society.

Keywords: ʿAbd Al-Razzāq Sanhūrī; Civil Law; Egyptian society
