Abstract

Abstract:

Drawing on the case of British Somaliland (circa 1884–1960), this article argues that Islam—and competing views of Islamic law in politics—occupied a critical role during the region's colonial period. In particular, British colonial administrators and Muslim clerics both turned eastward to the Arabian Peninsula for inspiration and justification for their critiques of one another.
