Section Description

This is an introduction to the major institutions that evolved under the aegis of what we might call Islamic civilization since the Mongol conquest of Baghdad in 1258 until our own time. The principal geographical areas that we will cover are the Middle East, North Africa and India. Since "Islam" encompasses not simply a religion but an entire cultural complex, we shall examine political, economic, and social institutions developed in the Islamic world as well as the religious ones. No prior knowledge of Islam or the Middle East is assumed; students possessing prior knowledge are, however, welcome. Cross-listed with HST 046. Prerequisites: Degree students only, after level restrictions removed. Concentration: Africa/ Asia/ Middle East/ Global (HI04)
