Public Duties in Islam is the English translation of Ibn Taymiyah’s al-Hisba fi'l Islam by Muhtar Holland. It is a useful addition to Islamic economic literature in English language. Notwithstanding a few small errors, the translation reads well and the notes are excellent. This book is a good manual and can justifiably be claimed to be a treatise on Islamic sociology, political science and economics. It has a rich introduction by the editor, Professor Khurshid Ahmad and a useful paper titled: "al-Hisba and Islamic Economy" by M. Akram Khan.
