Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Highly regarded since it was first published in 1975, the second of Hodgson's three volume 'Venture of Islam' series investigates the establishment of an international Islamic civilization during the Middle Period, from 945 to around 1500. Rejecting Eurocentric time frames and interpretations of 'the Islamicate', Hodgon demonstrates how Islam emerged to form a dominant common culture, across expanding ethnically diverse regions that were subject to political fragmentation and later the turmoil of the Mongol invasions.

This is probably the most accessible of the three volume series, notable for its extraordinary analysis and insights into the similarities, differences and relationship between the medieval Occident and the Islamicate in the same era. Hodgson's world history perspective is now firmly established in academia, avoiding inappropriate European concepts in its analysis, such as feudalism, as well as the presumption that European hegemony is the apotheosis of cultural evolution.
