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.

Review Quotes
Juan Cole, University of Michigan
“In our age of Islamophobia and renewed racialist and religious nationalisms, nothing could be more important than Marshall Hodgson’s humanist and universalist vision, exemplified in his Venture of Islam. These essential essays on Hodgson stand as almost unique in exploring the life and thought of a major American thinker on Islam and Muslim civilization, and they will be indispensable to anyone concerned with world history.”
Bruce Lawrence, Duke University
“Burke has done more than any other scholar to preserve and project the legacy of Hodgson as both Islamic and world historian over the decades. This new collection of essays will add to the luster of Hodgson’s earlier volumes, sparking renewed interest and intense debate about the nature of his stature as a global historian of the Islamic world.”
