Format: Paperback
I hope the translation of Schulze's general work on the modern history of Islam will lead to the translation of some of his works, especially on Pan-Islamism. This book has its weaknesses throughout due to the very nature of the enterprise. It's all too easy to point out what such attempts to give comprehensive histories lack. Nonetheless, out of all the books out there, I recommend Schulze's book more than any other because it avoids sensationalism and the essentialization of Islamic history. Moreoever, it presents Islamic history in th idiom of political modenrity rather than in mediaeval throwbacks that are not sufficient for explaining polyvalent nature of modern Islamic history. The translation, however, was poorly edited even after coming out in paperback, which is a shame. Overall, this doesn't detract from the overall quality of the work.

Format: Paperback
I am not quite sure what to make of this book, but here goes. It is a historically rich narrative of the Islamic world over the past century, it is an objective and successful attempt at finding out how the Islamic world has changed and why and its relation to the rest of the world and other cultures. I should warn you, though, that it is not a light read and you may find yourself going back a couple of pages to re-orient yourself.
There is a special focus on the different political theories and ideologies and their influence on Muslims as they came into contact with them as a result of integration with the rest of the world, especially after the fall of the Ottoman Empire. It seems to be a fitting addition to the resource materials required for any serious political science/history class and it is a very deep analysis (he is a scholar). A very educating work.

Format: Paperback
This very good history of Islamic world of the last 100 years. The unlike most histories of the Islamic world, the author avoids Orientalism and as result is able to tell a coherent and compelling story. The book provides a historical supplement to Sayyid's A Fundamental Fear. I would recommend reading both of these together. Where Fundamenatal Fear provides a theoritical analysis, this book provides a historically rich description.
