    One thought on “The Venture of Islam, Vol 2: The Expansion of Islam in the Middle Periods”

    1. The second installment of Hodgson s trilogy is if anything even better than the first, giving the reader a bird s eye view of the socio cultural context of late medieval Islam As in the first volume, I particularly enjoyed Hodgson s treatment of religious developments and especially of sufism I wish the author had been even told than usual in questioning the traditional narrative of Islamic decline as the society that emerges from the pages of this work is revealed as one in the full prime of h [...]

    2. Interesting, but it s so dry that it takes a lot of work to push through it I read the first volume, but I just couldn t force my way through this one These are full of information, but than a little overwhelming Too many names, places, and empires to keep track of More maps, charts, etc would really help the entire series.

    3. The most comprehensive History of the Islamic World in the Medieval Period Deals with dynastic, culture and intellectual developments Well written and extremely erudite, it is a reference used by all specialists in the field I am not as enad of volume I as I am of this volume.

    4. The Venture of Islam series is simply the best history of the the Islamic and Islamicate world as a whole Hodgson was such a visionary thinker, it is a shame he passed away so young
