Michael Cook's classic study, Commanding Right and Forbidding Wrong in Islamic Thought (Cambridge, 2001), reflected upon the Islamic injunction to forbid wrongdoing. This book is a short, accessible survey of the same material. Using Islamic history to illustrate his argument, Cook unravels the complexities of the subject by demonstrating how the past informs the present. At the book's core is an important message about the values of Islamic traditions and their relevance in the modern world.

MICHAEL COOK worked as Regional Director for the National Trust in South-West England until his retirement in 2002. He then completed a Ph.D. in English at the University of Bristol, UK, which was awarded in 2008. He has lectured on diverse subjects including film and conservation, and is currently researching the Ghost Story and the poetry of John Clare and Wilfred Owen.
