We often think that people from a thouand years ago were living in the Dark Ages. But from the 7th century onward in Muslim civilisation there were amazing advances and inventions that still influence our everyday lives.

People living in the Muslim world saw what the Egyptians, Chinese, Indians, Greek and Romans had discovered and spent the next one thousand years adding new developments and ideas. Inventors created marvels like the elephant water clock, explorers drew detailed maps of the world, women made scientific breakthroughs and founded universities, architects built huge domes larger than anywhere else on earth. astronomers mapped the stars and so mucn more! This book takes the winning formula of facts, photos and fun, and it applies it to this companion book to the 1001 inventions exhibit from the Foundation for Science, Technology and Civilisation. Each page is packed with information on this little-known history, but also shows how it still applies to our world today.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"National Geographic has developed a book that's as packed with information as an encyclopedia but as much fun to read as a comic book... Readers interested in the value Muslim civilizations have added to our global village will be hard-pressed to find a more stimulating introduction than this one." -- Kirkus Reviews

"This heavily illustrated volume...stands on its own as an accessible history of the golden era that spanned from the 7th to the 17th century." -Boston Sunday Globe
