Between the 8th and 15th centuries, researchers working from Samarkand in modern-day Uzbekistan to Cordoba in Spain advanced our knowledge of astronomy, medicine and philosophy. This title presents the story of one of history's most misunderstood yet rich periods in science: the extraordinary Islamic scientific revolution between 700 and 1400 AD.

‘Science and Islam, a fascinating and clearly written book.’ -- New Scientist

‘And, as this impressive book by Eshan Masood, which ‘accompanies a major television series’, reveals, this intersection between science and religion also permeated the history of Islam.’ -- Geographical Magazine

‘This is a delightful and approachable book, packed with surprises and treats and offered by a writer whose passion for the subject does not daunt his objectivity.’ -- Wharf

‘Refreshingly different ....Masood’s [book] emphasis on context, combined with his easy prose, measured self-confident tone, and an effort to inject compelling human drama into the narrative, makes the present book – for the most part – wonderfully captivating.’ -- Arif Babul, Observatory Magazine
