Hodgson, Marshall G., Hodgson, Marshall G. S.

SUMMARY

The Venture of Islamhas been honored as a magisterial work of the mind since its publication in early 1975. In this three-volume study, illustrated with charts and maps, Hodgson traces and interprets the historical development of Islamic civilization from before the birth of Muhammad to the middle of the twentieth century. This work grew out of the famous course on Islamic civilization that Hodgson created and taught for many years at the University of Chicago. In this concluding volume ofThe Venture of Islam, Hodgson describes the second flowering of Islam: the Safavi, Timuri, and Ottoman empires. The final part of the volume analyzes the widespread Islamic heritage in today's world. "This is a nonpareil work, not only because of its command of its subject but also because it demonstrates how, ideally, history should be written."--The New YorkerHodgson, Marshall G. is the author of 'Venture of Islam The Gunpowder Empire and Modern Times', published 1977 under ISBN 9780226346854 and ISBN 0226346854.
