This chapter offers a comparative set of examples to the dhimmī rules by analyzing recent court decisions in France, the UK, and the US that regulate the covered Muslim woman. By offering a close reading of the cases and examining the jurisprudence used to justify the legal outcomes, the chapter suggests that the dynamics underlying premodern dhimmī rules and contemporary legal decisions on the covered Muslim woman share more than might seem apparent.
