The book under review, edited by Professor Dr. Muhammad Loqman, contains eleven chapters that deals mostly with management and its different components including Islamic model of entrepreneurship, the creed of modern management, organizational leadership from Islamic perspective, need for managerial ethics in business, quality management and application of zero-tolerance, liquidity and fund management, Islamic management and its present applications in Islamic organizations. The book begins with the chapter entitled “Towards an Islamic Model of Entrepreneurship” in which Prof. A J M Nuruddin Chowdhury identifies the flaws of contemporary entrepreneurship that subordinates basic Islamic values, morals and ethics. These entrepreneurs use immoral strategies and evil and dishonest actions to exploit the social resources. In order to be able to up-hold the basic Islamic values, morals and ethics, the author advocated Islamic Model of Entrepreneurship. However, the author basically adopted the existing input-process-output-feedback model and advocated, among others, using and mobilizing inputs and resources incorporating Islamic ideas and thoughts, moral values and ethics. Prof. Dr. Muhammad Loqman and Mr. Md.
