From Musa al-Khwarizmi who developed algebra in 9th century Baghdad to al-Jazari, a 13th-century Turkish engineer whose achievements include the crank, the camshaft and the reciprocating piston, Science and Islam tells the story of one of history's most misunderstood yet rich and fertile periods in science: the extraordinary Islamic scientific revolution between 700 and 1400 CE.

MEDIA REVIEWS
'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
