Published in 1974, Marshall Hodgson's The Venture of Islam was a
watershed moment in the study of Islam. By locating the history of
Islamic societies in a global perspective, Hodgson challenged the
orientalist paradigms that had stunted the development of Islamic
studies and provided an alternative approach to world history.
Edited by Edmund Burke III and Robert Mankin, Islam and World
History explores the complexity of Hodgson's thought, the daring of
his ideas, and the global context of his world historical insights
into, among other themes, Islam and world history, gender in Islam,
and the problem of Muslim universality. In our post-9/11 world,
Hodgson's historical vision and moral engagement have never been
more relevant. A towering achievement, Islam and World History will
prove to be the definitive statement on Hodgson's relevance in the
twenty-first century and will introduce his influential work to a
new generation of readers.
