Abstract

INTRODUCTION The third issue of the Arab Law Quarterly for 1989 has a wide variety of articles. First, we are pleased to publish Dr. Al-Qasem's article on injurious acts in Jordan, which discusses in detail the relevant provisions of the Jordanian Civil Code and their interpretation. There follows a description of insurance and Islamic law, by Professor Samir Mankabady, and a translation by James Whelan of the Arab agreement for the protection of authors' rights. This latter piece indicates the steps being taken in the Arab world to protect artistic composition, and is already being followed in practice in many states. Readers will then find an article by Gary Feulner on the Commercial Companies Law of the United Arab Emirates, dealing specifically with the 1988 amendments. The text continues with Richard J. Price's speech to the IBA conference in Bahrain on maritime litigation in the GCC states, followed by an overview of the rules on ownership of Egyptian land by non-Egyptians, succinctly explained by Dr. Nairn Attia. Dr. Isam Ghanem has contributed an interesting note on the pitfalls possible under Islamic law when performing autopsies, and we also present a further excerpt from the Mejelle, Book XI on agency. The text continues with notes on Commercial and Industrial Licences for Foreigners in Egypt; Presidential Decree No. 399 of 1987; Law No. 56 of 1988; Ministerial Decree No. 572 of 1988. This is followed by a section of Book Reviews which completes the text. THE EDITORS S
