The Principles of State and Government in Islam is a book written by Muhammad Asad. It was originally published in 1961 by University of California Press , and a revised edition was published in 1980 by Islamic Book Trust.
The very fact that none of the existing Muslim countries has so far achieved a form of government that could be termed genuinely Islamic, makes a discussion of the principles that underlie the constitution of Islamic state imperative. This book is an attempt to keep that discussion alive.
