USE THOSE 2 SOURCES: you probably wont use Armstrong,K but it is okay.
1) Karen Armstrong, Islam: A Short History (New York, Modern Library, 2002). ISBN 978- 0-8129-6618-3 (Paperback edition)
2) Robert Marks. The Origins of the Modern World. 3rd ed. (Lanham, Maryland: Rowman & Little, 2015) ISBN 978-1-4422-1240-4
-Youll find most of what you need to write the essay on CHAPTER FOUR of Marks, R.The Origins of the Modern World. You can skim through the prior chapters, dont go beyond chapter 4.
-If you can find anything on the Environmental and Social consequences of industrialization in Armstrong please include that but that is not the books focus. You might want to look for some consequences of industrialization on the islamic world, the book possibly mentions that. if you do not find anything it is totally fine.
THIS IS AN EXPOSITORY ESSAY.
