Mohammed by Maxime Rodinson( Book )

64 editions published between 1961 and 2008 in 4 languages and held by 1,959 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A definitive and fascinating introduction to the life, ideas, and impact of the founder of Islam. Maxime Robinson's Muhammad has long been regarded as one of the touchstones of scholarship on the founder of Islam. Thirty years after first being published in English, it remains the definitive introduction to the Prophet's life. Drawing on wide-ranging scholarship and imaginative insight into the Prophet's personality, family, background, and wider society, Rodinson's Muhammad offers a vivid account of how he spread the word of Islam, created a sect and state, and defeated his enemies, establishing the first great Muslim military power -- a power which was soon to control territory stretching all the way from the Pyrenees to the borders of China. For anyone who wants to understand the historical roots of one of the world's great religions, Rodinson's Muhammad provides the ideal guide to a fascinating and timely subject. -- Description from http://www.amazon.com (Jan. 26, 2012)
Israel and the Arabs by Maxime Rodinson( Book )

84 editions published between 1968 and 1991 in 6 languages and held by 1,662 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Traces the history of Zionism and examines the changing ambitions and inter-relations of the Arab nations, a challenging contribution from a Jewish professor who is sympathetic to the Arab cause
Islam and capitalism by Maxime Rodinson( Book )

118 editions published between 1966 and 2014 in 9 languages and held by 1,550 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book is a rebuttal of the cultural reductionism of Max Weber and others who have tried to explain the politics and society of the Middle East by reference to some unchanging entity called "Islam," typically characterized as instinctively hostile to capitalism. The author looks at the facts, analyzing economic texts, to show that Muslims never had any problem making money
The Arabs by Maxime Rodinson( Book )

14 editions published between 1979 and 1981 in 3 languages and held by 919 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Arabs is an interpretative essay based upon a great deal of reading and research, and like other writings of the author, brilliant and insightful. Rodinson's response to the question Who are the Arabs? traces the career of the Arab people from their first appearance about twenty-nine centuries ago up to the present day. The purpose of the book is to make the reader aware of an undeniable Arab being, of its historic performance and its contemporary situation, on the basis of a scientifically careful but sympathetic study and statement."

Marxism and the Muslim world by Maxime Rodinson( Book )

43 editions published between 1972 and 2015 in 4 languages and held by 821 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Europe and the mystique of Islam by Maxime Rodinson( Book )

68 editions published between 1978 and 2009 in 5 languages and held by 804 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Since the time of the Crusades, Europeans have viewed Muslim culture and religion through the unique distorting lens of Orientalism, coloring all aspects of their perception and generating a curious blend of fascination and distrust. Maxime Rodinson presents the classic account of this relationship, in a history that is balanced and concise yet full of insight
Israel: a colonial-settler state? by Maxime Rodinson( Book )

32 editions published between 1967 and 2014 in 3 languages and held by 631 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Examining the Zionist colonization of Palestine, Maxime Rodinson explains that Israel's formation was part of the pattern of 19th and 20th century colonial conquest. The Zionist movement received active support from the major imperialist powers and -like other colonialist movements- employed a nationally exclusive, racist ideology to justify the subjugation of native farmers and workers."--Page 4 of cover
Les Arabes by Maxime Rodinson( Book )

42 editions published between 1972 and 2015 in 4 languages and held by 412 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Extension du peuple arabe, origines ethniques et culturelles de chacune de ses composantes
L'islam : politique et croyance by Maxime Rodinson( Book )

13 editions published between 1993 and 2001 in French and held by 194 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

La vie du monde qui professe la religion musulmane ne peut pas s'expliquer entièrement, loin de là, par la doctrine musulmane. Je me refuse à considérer l'Islam comme une totalité conceptuelle, un système d'idées, de pratiques, qui serait le noyau de tous les comportements, publics et privés. C'est pour cela que j'aime mieux parler des musulmans que de l'Islam, quoique j'accorde également un grand intérêt, sur un autre plan, à la doctrine, à la foi et aux rituels qui leur sont liés. Cette série d'articles s'inspire de ces idées générales pour essayer de démontrer les mécanismes des rapports entre la doctrine de l'Islam et le comportement, les structures politiques, sociales, culturelles de ce qu'on appelle le monde musulman. Mais la "doctrine musulmane" elle-même est rarement conforme en tous points à l'Islam de départ. Je ne me borne donc pas à une période particulière de l'histoire musulmane. Certains articles traitent de la structure de l'ensemble des sociétés musulmanes, depuis les origines jusqu'à nos jours ; d'autres traitent plus particulièrement des sociétés musulmanes contemporaines. -- Publisher description
The Muslim discovery of Europe by Bernard Lewis( Book )

11 editions published between 1984 and 2005 in French and Undetermined and held by 182 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Les mœurs, les arts, la littérature, les sciences, les prodiges techniques du vieux continent, mais aussi les batailles que l'Occident livra à l'Islam, ont été racontés, voire disséqués, par des voyageurs, des diplomates, des historiens ou des érudits musulmans. Soucieux d'éveiller l'intérêt de leur public, mais attachés à défendre la supériorité de l'Islam, ils laissèrent trop souvent dans leurs écrits et témoignages la fiction le disputer à la réalité. L'Européen est ici le barbare exotique, soumis à l'observation d'explorateurs singuliers. Car, à l'évidence, l'Islam n'a guère montré de grande curiosité pour l'Occident jusqu'au milieu du siècle dernier. Bernard Lewis s'interroge sur les multiples raisons - linguistiques, ethniques, religieuses, anthropologiques - de cette indifférence de l'Orient envers l'Europe. L'histoire séculaire d'une méconnaissance nous permet de mieux comprendre les malentendus qui aujourd'hui encore séparent l'Islam d'une Europe trop souvent chargée de tous les maux. -- Publisher description
Magie, médecine et possession à Gondar by Maxime Rodinson( Book )

21 editions published in 1967 in 4 languages and held by 182 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

La Fascination de l'Islam ; suivi de Le Seigneur bourguignon et l'esclave sarrasin by Maxime Rodinson( Book )

16 editions published between 1989 and 2003 in French and Spanish and held by 179 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

De la conquête arabe à la vaste entreprise des croisades, des ambassadeurs ottomans du temps de la Renaissance à l'aventure coloniale, le monde musulman est présent depuis mille ans dans l'histoire de l'Europe. Une confrontation souvent violente, de Poitiers à Lépante à l'Algérie, mais aussi des alliances tactiques, et souvent une grande attirance intellectuelle : Pierre le Vénérable, abbé de Cluny, fait traduire le Coran au XIIe siècle, Roger Bacon reconnaît cent ans plus tard l'apport à la grande tradition philosophique de penseurs arabes comme Avicenne, et le XIXe siècle invente un savoir nouveau, l'orientalisme. Les trois essais réunis dans ce volume racontent l'histoire de ces relations mouvementées, et répondent aux questions que l'on peut aujourd'hui se poser sur leurs origines et leur développement. -- Back cover

Peuple juif ou problème juif? by Maxime Rodinson( Book )

12 editions published between 1980 and 1997 in French and English and held by 166 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Publié pour la première fois en 1981, ce recueil d'articles n'a rien perdu de son actualité, tant la question juive et l'Etat d'Israël restent l'objet de tous les délires et de tous les mythes. L'auteur éclaire la trajectoire du peuple juif et propose une réflexion qui se veut critique à l'égard de l'optique judéocentrique
Medieval Arab cookery by Maxime Rodinson( Book )

14 editions published between 2001 and 2006 in English and held by 133 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The French scholar, Maxime Rodinson's contributions are legendary, yet have only been seen in translation in Petits Propos Culinaires. We include those already published there, together with the text of his longest paper, 'Recherches sur les documents Arabes relatifs a la cuisine', translated by Barbara Yeomans. The American scholar Charles Perry has been entertaining participants at the Oxford Symposium with regular gleanings from his researches into medieval Arab cookery, and several of his papers are gathered here, together with a new study of fish recipes, and other items previously published in PPC. Subjects include grain foods of the early Turks, rotted condiments, cooking pots, and Kitab al-Tibakhah, a 15th-century cookery book. English study of the subject was first encouraged by Professor Arberry's translation of the 13th-century cookery book Kitab al-Tabikh, published in 1939 in the periodical Islamic Culture."
