520    "This book seeks to reshape our understanding of 
       secularism, Muslim law, and divorce in contemporary India.
       Drawing on the most seminal recent analyses of secularism-
       -including those of Hussain Ali Agrama and Saba Mahmood, 
       as well as the longstanding work of Talal Asad--Lemons 
       argues that secularism in the post-colonial Indian context
       entails not the separation of religion from the state, but
       rather the state's definition and regulation of religion, 
       and hence the inevitable intertwining of religion and 
       politics. Neither a particular disposition, nor a 
       particular content, the secular marks instead this 
       regulatory interest of the state (as well as of non-state 
       actors). This insight enables Lemons to show how a variety
       of arenas that respond to marital strife and adjudicate 
       divorce among Muslims--ranging from women's arbitration 
       centers (mahila panchayats), to jurists' fatwas, to 
       "Shari'a" courts, to muftis' ritual healing practices--are
       engaged in the secular work of continually defining 
       religion and law"--|cProvided by publisher.
