Companion to the record-breaking London exhibit, this book is rich with vibrant images and little known facts that highlight revolutionising discoveries made throughout Muslim history that effected world change and continue to shape our world today. The beautifully illustrated volume mirrors the original self-published book in stunning illustrations, information, and scope, but has a more accessible presentation and price to appeal to both trade consumers and exhibit visitors. The book explores scientific and technological history in Islamic culture from health care to astronomy to reveal the innovations of Muslim society that have shaped our modern world. Complete with a foldout timeline and map illustrating the worldly contributions of Muslims, remarkable photographs and colourful illustrations, artefacts, historic documents and drawings, this book not only reveals 1001 Muslim inventions, but provides insight into the everyday life of the historic Muslim society and related Western growth.
