Marshall G. S. Hodgson, best known for his three-volume "Venture of Islam: Conscience and History in a World Civilization", was also a world historian of note. His posthumous "Rethinking World History" makes available his interregional approach to world history. This article argues that his chief contributions to the writing of world history were his consideration of epistemological issues, his resituation of the history of Europe (and thus of modernity as a global process) in the hemispheric interregional context of Afro-Eurasia, and his elaboration of a vision of world history as the center of a reinvigorated historical discipline.
