The Venture Of Islam Clasical Age Vol 1 Marshall Hodgson

Hodgson, who, in my view, was not only a major figure in devising the conceptual framework and major questions that inform Islamic history today, but was also the author of one of the chief alternatives to the still dominant civilizational history approach to world history. It is the first book of critical essays on the work of Hodgson, an Islamic and world historian who died in at the age of forty six.

He was chairman of the interdisciplinary Committee on Social Thought in Chicago. Though he did not publish extensively during his lifetime, he has become arguably the most influential American historian of Islam due to his three-volume The Venture of Islam: Conscience and History in a World Civilization , which The University of Chicago Press, in collaboration with Reuben Smith and other colleagues, published after his death. The work is recognized as a masterpiece that radically reconfigured the academic study of Islam. In The Venture of Islam, Hodgson positioned Islam as a spiritual endeavor with a profound moral vision--on par with other world religions. He also reimagined the terminology of Islamic history and religion, coining terms like Islamdom playing off "Christendom".

By Marshall G. To consider mankind otherwise than brethren, to think favours are peculiar to one nation and exclude others, plainly supposes a darkness in the understanding. Marshall Goodwin Simms Hodgson died suddenly on June 10, , in his forty-seventh year, before he had finished this and other works. At the time of his death the manuscript for the first four of the six books of The Venture of Islam had been submitted to a publisher as final although minor editing and footnote attribution still remained to be done ; he had reworked much of Book Five; and he had indicated revisions wanted in Book Six. Many of the charts and diagrams were only sketches, and there were only general descriptions of the intended maps. A much shorter version of the work, resembling The Venture of Islam in its general form, had existed for a number of years, used and sought after by graduate and undergraduate students alike. It had started as a brief outline, some chapters consisting of only two or three pages or not yet even written.

Islam between Culture and Politics pp Cite as. Islam is a world religion, and it also forms the basis of a world civilisation which was once very powerful. Due to its spread across the world Islamic civilisation is composed of a great variety of diverse local cultures. The combination of civilisational unity and cultural diversity is thus a hallmark of Islam. It is unfortunate that in our age Islam is mostly addressed in political terms.

In he immigrates to Medina and establishes the first Islamic polity. After conquering Mecca, he dies in and the Muslim community ummah institutes the Caliphate. After a period of civil war fitna following the death of the third Caliph Uthman, the Arab Umayyad Dynasty is established, followed by the more diverse Abbasid Caliphate, and, after a brief period of cultural fluorescence, the Islamic empire sinks into an irreparable political degeneration, which culminates in the sack of Baghdad by the Mongols in Thus begins the lengthy decline of Islam. As Bulliet points out, many accounts of Islamic history actually end here.
