A fine addition and support to the argument put forward by Edward Said in his "Orientalism"; a readable history and with the insights of a practising physicist.

This was my first encounter with that period in science hystory. I found it well narrated, thourough and objective. The language is easy. This book encouraged me to take interest in similar fields more deeply.

Extremely well written and a mine of information about history of the area of the "Land between the Rivers" apart from
interesting facts about Arabic Science.

I really enjoy Jim's excellent TV programmes.His books are just as good and his writing style and delivery make this subject readily accessible to non scientists like me!
