Book published by Khaled el-Rouayheb, on Islamic Intellectual History

In July 2015, Khaled El-Rouayheb, James Richard Jewett Professor of Arabic and of Islamic Intellectual History, published a new book: Islamic Intellectual History in the Seventeenth Century: Scholarly Currents in the Ottoman Empire and the Maghreb (Cambridge University Press). It appears to be a major - field-changing - work, judging from the early reviews

His book is described as "the first sustained effort at investigating the intellectual currents among Ottoman and North African scholars of the early modern period and argues for a more textured - and text-centered - understanding of the vibrant exchange of ideas and transmission of knowledge across a vast expanse of Ottoman-controlled territory."
