AD8302 and log-amps for phase detection

Hi, I was reading with interest some phase detection circuits' datasheet proposed by Analog. In particular, I was reading of the AD8302 so a conceptual question has popped out into my mind.

I am new to log-amps theory and I would be glad to go deep in detail, but I'm questioning how the output of a logamp can drive a XOR-like phase detector like the one in the AD8302 and let it measure the phase difference also of modulated signals (indeed in the bandwidth of the device).

So, if anybody has links, book chapters, white papers or something that would me help going deep in this topic, I am glad to welcome your precious help!
