The debunking of Patricia Crone
Patricia Crone on Hagarism:
Crone on Meccan Trade:
Ulrike Mitter on Roman, Provincial and Islamic Law. Note: Crone salvaged this book from the second part of her own doctoral thesis, supervised by Bernard Lewis. She downplays said thesis in the preface to this very book:
Michael RJ Bonner on "Qubād’s Heresy and Mazdak’s Revolt":
Of course, mine own curriculum-vitae ain't much better. I mean, I do not hold a Ph.D. at all, even with an asterisk. And I certainly cannot boast a thesis-advisor that launched a thousand ships.
UPDATE 9/13/2014: An earlier version pointed to some skepticism by Gabriel Said Reynolds. This may well amount to less of a debunking and more of a quibble.
UPDATE 1/28/2017: On the other hand, now we hear that Mazdakism wasn't much of a heresy.
