5.0 out of 5 stars Well Done BBC, 15 Feb 2010

This review is from: Science and Islam: A History (Paperback)
A good easy to read book to follow the documentary, which I hope will be released on DVD. It is a good beginners book, which gives a great overview that teaches and reminds us how Islam encouraged and contributed greatly to the develpment and progress of Science and how that drive and legacy shaped the European Enlightment and the Modern world Algebra, Industry, Astronomy, Health care and even Evolution and how broad and open it is to integrate religion with science and progress. Sadly especially today Islam is at times misunderstood and abused for political reasons but this book and similiar ones makes a difference by teaching us historical facts and how now it's legacy is being acknowledged. It also gives us a good overview of the great Muslim dynasties and empires without overshadowing the books title and what we can learn from the past and apply it today. Put the newspaper down and read this enlightening book to rediscover history or your heritage. It reminds us especially today that education is the duty and requirement of every Muslim equal to the Mosque.
