When the only thing left to hide behind is a mask, you get desperate. I used to take photos of crimes as they happened, afraid to intervene. I was just trying to help my police department keep up with civil unrest in the middle of a war with Centauri, a country convinced we killed their prince. Their mercenary, Lioness, blew up part of the city. When she left my best friend covered in burns, I understood photos were not enough to protect people. I found the corruption that danced through our country’s War Office trying to appease the enemy enough to keep our soldiers alive. They want Spades of all people, the boy that tells nothing but lies. I have learned that when you don’t have a name, people think of you when they say, “Somebody should fix this.” So I became Revolutionary, and I am demanding a revolt to free my home from the domineering grip of the enemy.

This innovative and important book applies classical Sunni Muslim legal and religious doctrine to contemporary issues surrounding armed conflict. In doing so it shows that the shari'a and Islamic law are not only compatible with contemporary international human rights law and international humanitarian law norms, but are appropriate for use in Muslim societies. By grounding contemporary post-conflict processes and procedures in classical Muslim legal and religious doctrine, it becomes more accessible to Muslim societies who are looking for appropriate legal mechanisms to deal with the aftermath of armed conflict. This book uniquely presents a critique of the violent practices of contemporary Muslims and Muslim clerics who support these practices. It rebuts Islamophobes in the West that discredit Islam on the basis of the abhorrent practices of some Muslims, and hopes to reduce tensions between Western and Islamic civilizations by enhancing common understanding of the issues.
