Whereas it was formerly assumed that these tribal frameworks were doomed to extinction, and some states even encouraged such a process, there has been a revival in their vitality, linked to a recognition of their rights.

How do we make an earth-centered vision the heart of a faith for the second axial age? Similarly, since the point of tribal justice is to restore the harmony of the group, not abstractly to punish the law-breaker, it is far better to bring offenders back into the fold of the community as quickly as possible rather than to lock them up with other criminals for extended periods of time. It is a landmark analytical and theoretical sociological study that not only fills a need but also provides a basic model and impetus for further research.

Whereas it was formerly assumed that these tribal frameworks were doomed to extinction, and some states even encouraged such a process, there has been a revival in their vitality, linked to a recognition of their rights. He shows that this was often done legally--that is, according to the laws of the Western societies--and rationally--according to the rules of reason of the conquerors--but never in a way which was fully understood or accepted by the members of the tribal societies, who had different laws and different rules of reason--no less lawful and rational than those of the West, but nonetheless quite different. Sheleff might well have also mentioned America's obsession with guns as another weird custom beyond the comprehension of most humans.

The crux of the matter is how it might be possible for indigenous people to live by their own laws and customs, if they wish, especially considering that many states throughout the world are in the process of weakening and, in some instances, dividing, and perhaps ultimately transforming into nonspatial or non-exclusively-spatial forms of governance. The debate often leaves us with a choice between two mutually exclusive worlds: the modern West with its enlightenment and science and accompanying secular education, or else Islam and Islamic education, characterised by orthodoxy and tradition.
Which educational culture was part of the highly developed intellectual culture of classical Islam?
