Basic Principles of Islamic Economic System
This research report is concerned with the mass of material on Islamic economics, written in Turkish language during the last fifty years of Republican period. Therefore, the very rich materials, written during the Ottoman Period, are not covered. More than four thousand books were published during the last fifty years related to the topics of Islam. Out of them, about seven per cent are devoted to the specific subject of Islamic economics which are composed or translated by Turkish authors. The articles published in periodicals are excluded from these figures. Actually they are incomplete, for systematic classification of articles in National Library started only after 1950. Totally, four per cent of publications related to Islamic economics were printed before 1950, 22 per cent were published during the period of 1950 to 1960 and 74 per cent, that is, three-quarters are outcome of the period after 1960. In the original text, these publications were classified according to the periods, topics, writer, publisher, etc., and the contents of the composed books summarized and annotated. In other words, this research report was originally arranged as an Annotated Bibliography, and on a subject-classification system. In this book, it is rearranged on a subject classification system without annotation.
