Refresh and try again. Certainly Islam came late to the region. It points no less to a process that Alfred Gell has called the enchantment of technology, by which charismatic no less than reformist Muslim groups were able to make use of the new technologies.

Through her biography of this pan-Ottomanist turned pan-Arabist, Ghazal captures the complex interplay between Salafi, pan-Islamist, and Ibadi reformist circles and casts new light on the transition from Ottoman to post-Ottoman iden- tities across the Arab world. This piece orients anarchist and socialist ideas within the wider and better known intellectual currents of the nahda, while showing how Arab diasporic networks in Egypt, Brazil, and North America intersected with both local and global networks of Italian anarchists.
In the second section, Gelvin and Green argue that only the Columbian Exchange of the fifteenth and sixteenth centuries rivaled the dramatic acceleration of linkages and exchanges unleashed during the Age of Steam and Print. Like the ravages of smallpox unleashed on the Americas during the Exchange, the globalization of cholera defined the steamship era. Not only was cholera a global phenom- enon, the fight against hajj-related pandemics was global in scope. Although international quarantines centered on the Red Sea, surveillance measures reached into remote corners of India and Southeast Asia.
Robert Crews takes us from germs to guns. Crews reconstructs the global arms trade, piecing together clandestine circuits linking a variety of actors, including German manufacturers, Belgian middlemen, British steamship companies, Persian officials, Afghan nomads, Armenian revolutionaries, and Persian racketeers.
Jeremy Prestholdt examines the enigmatic Emily Ruete. Following an affair with a German merchant, Ruete found herself pregnant, fled to Aden, married the merchant, and converted to Christianity. She was a cosmopolitan who longed for Zanzibar, found Europe unbearable, and ultimately could find solace only in Beirut. Her memoirs were not just the product of new forms of physical mobility. They also depended on new literary forms of self-definition, alienation, and a reimagining of civilizational space, which reflected a deepening Muslim engagement with Europe.
As the author argues, the Chinese Muslims behind these projects understood themselves as reuniting Chinese and Arabic civilizations. But this episode was more than a story of Chinese-Arab intellectual encounters.
Global Muslims in the Age of Steam and Print reflects just how far the global turn has progressed. The essays in this volume no longer bear the clumsiness of area studies specialists fumbling toward transregional frames. These pieces read more confidently, evoking a Muslim- centric rejoinder to C.
The second half of the nineteenth century marks a watershed in human history. Railroads linked remote hinterlands with cities; overland and undersea cables. Global Muslims in the Age of Steam and Print and millions of other books are available for Amazon Kindle. "Global Muslims in the Age of Steam and Print collects into a richly textured account some of the best work on Islamic world and Indian Ocean history." James L. Gelvin is.
On the whole, the contributions skew slightly toward South Asia, Southeast Asia, and the wider Indian Ocean as opposed to the more con- ventionally defined Middle East. Another outcome of the globalized shape of this book is that the state is generally subordinated to narratives of mobility, literary production, and commodity flows.
This critical point could have been better developed in the essays that follow. Despite these slight weaknesses, Gelvin and Green have crafted a richly nuanced collection of cutting-edge research on the intellectual, tech- nological, and social history of the modern Islamic world. Their volume is a must-read for scholars of the Middle East, Indian Ocean, and world history more broadly.
It should also attract attention from scholars of European imperialism and find its way onto a wide variety of advanced undergraduate and graduate syllabi. Gelvin and Nile Green -- Part One. Communities and Networks -- A Sufi Century? Hopper -- Part Three. Railroads linked remote hinterlands with cities; overland and undersea cables connected distant continents.
New and accessible print technologies made the wide dissemination of ideas possible; oceangoing steamers carried goods to distant markets and enabled the greatest long-distance migrations in recorded history. In this volume, leading scholars of the Islamic world recount the enduring consequences these technological, economic, social, and cultural revolutions had on Muslim communities from North Africa to South Asia, the Indian Ocean and China.
