Select Bibliography-"Islam in World/Global History" and "World History of Religions"


Weller, R. Charles, World History Bulletin


I am currently preparing a "Select Bibliographic Essay on 'the Kingdom of God', 'Dar al-Islam' and World History" which I was hoping to have included in the Spring 2008 edition of WHB. I have essentially completed that essay, but am awaiting important feedback from several scholars, including hopefully one or two Muslim scholars, in order to polish up its quality a bit before releasing it. In the meantime, there seems no need to withhold for another six months the two following sets of select bibliographies from that essay, one on 'Islam in world/global history' and one on 'world history of religions', so I will set them forth here for whatever contribution they may make to the general study of world history, with a view to referencing this piece in my forthcoming essay.

First, as an important addition to the contribution P.L. Sinitiere, "Of Borders and Boundaries: World History, World Christianity, and the Pedagogy of Religion" (in J. Tishken, ed., WHB, Spring 2007, Vol XXIII, No 1, pp 7-14), I think he and most others would agree that discussion of 'world/global Christianity' and its proper place within world history should not overshadow the equally important subject of other religious traditions, including in this case 'global Islam' and its equally important place and role therein. Excluding standard 'histories of Islam', I posted a list of primary works on this topic on H-World (26 July 2007). With a few additions here and in no necessary order of precedence, those works include: Ahmed Nazeer, Islam in Global History: From the Death of the Prophet Muhammed to the First World War (Los Angeles, CA: American Institute of Islamic History and Culture, 2000); R.M. Eaton, Islamic History as Global History (American Historical Association, 1993), which is a small publication also included in M. Adas, ed, Islamic and European Expansion: The Forging of a Global Order (Temple University Press, 1993); M.G.S. Hodgson, ed. by E. Burke, III, Rethinking World History: Essays on Europe, Islam and World History (Cambridge University Press, 1993, esp. Part Two, "Islam in a global context"); Shahrough Akhavi, "Islam and the West in World History" (in Third World Quarterly, Vol 24, No 3, 2003, pp 545-562; see also Sage Public Administration Abstracts, Vol 31, No 1, 2004); J.O. Voll, "Islam as a Special World-System" (in Journal of World History, Vol 5, No 2, Fall 1994); T. …
