Islamicate Civilization, from the Beginning to European Colonialism

I take the word "Islamicate" from Hodgson's terrific Venture of Islam; he draws a subtle but I think valid distinction between "Islamic" (referring purely to the religion) and "Islamicate" (which is broader).

I am particularly interested in the history of science during this period, but all of it is interesting.
