BUILDING INFORMATION SYSTEMS IN THE ISLAMIC WORLD  
Edited by Ziauddin Sardar  
Information is power.  Industrialised nations control the world simply because they generate and distribute the main raw material and principal product of modern economies - information.  This book examines the reasons why Muslims have neglected to develop their own information structures; highlights areas of particular concern, and instances where progress is being made; and charts a course out of the present state of information dependency.

CONCEPTS OF ISLAMIC UMMAH AND SHARIAH 
Muhammad Mumtaz Ali 
This book raises fundamental questions about the methodology needed for the implementation of the Shariah.  The author has developed a "Three-Tier-Linkage" model to operationalize the Shariah in its true spirit.  There are four ingredients that will make the Ummah a reality, namely faith, action, organisation and leadership.  He also looks at the philosophical and ideological issues involved and addresses key contemporary issues, such as the fall of the Soviet Empire and the next challenge facing the world and Muslims.
