Amid Gods and Lords: Living Through Labyrinths of Religion and Law

Tahir Mahmood (Author)

The book is a new edition, thoroughly revised and overhauled, of the author`s thematic memoirs first published over a decade earlier.

Having lived his entire life through the labyrinths of religion and law, the author offers a candid account of his sweet and sour experiences - from the beginning till date - with people, places, issues and matters relating to these twin social control disciplines. Containing a fearless description of his lifelong observations at home and abroad, the book depicts a wide and heterogeneous spectrum of human behaviour.

On the pages of this book, the readers will find an insider`s story of many educational, spiritual, juridical and quasi-judicial institutions of national and international importance and of several celebrated socio-legal events and religious issues. Not intended to be a mere autobiographical work, the book furnishes empirical inputs on popular tendencies, approaches and mindsets prevailing in the society.
