Life in the Early Islamic World: Science, Medicine and Math

Crabtree Publishing, 2012

Science, Medicine and Math in the Early Islamic World looks at the important ideas, discoveries and inventions made by Muslims and related scholars from the 600s C.E. up to about 1800. It shows how their work influenced other peoples and our everyday lives today.

“Science, Medicine, and Math shows how advanced Islamic cultures were in these areas and how much Europe learned from them. Romanek covers both methodologies and notable Islamic names. This useful series is written with respect and appeal; boldfaced introductory paragraphs and plenty of sidebars draw readers in. The books are full of terrific examples of Islamic artwork (along with some contemporary photographs) that heighten and brighten the pages.”
