Christian and Jewish legal behavior under Islamic rule exposes a considerable
degree of fluidity across communal boundaries. such transcendence of religious
affiliation threatened to undermine the position of traditional religious elites. in

nationalism require state sovereignty, and are there any obligations holding
between nation states? Miller takes it for granted that 'each nation in asserting its

Miller 1994: 150-2). Miller is per- fectly content with this. There can be justice

Claims that obligations of justice extend globally for some issues, then, are
