A postmodem legality is visible in Turkey, where the traditional Muslim law was totally but only officially abalished and replaced by transplanted secular laws. Local and unofficial Turkish Muslim laws have resisted the unification and assimilation purposes of the modem nation-state. 1 People have not abandoned their local and religious laws and customs, whether legal modemity recognizes them or not. Today, secular official and Muslim unofficial laws co-exist in the Turkish socio-legal sphere.
