From the Publisher
"[The author] has an agreeably caustic and aggressive approach to outdated and erroneous ideas about the history of science. The book is a polemical essay, rather than a history, and welcome as such."
Times Literary Supplement [TLS]
"Scientist, Islamic scholar, novelist, and poet Iqbal first explains why the two-entity model of science and religion developed to analyze Western Christianity does not apply to Islam. Then he explores such questions as what was Islamic in Islamic science, whether there were tensions within the Islamic tradition that may have inhibited the full blossoming of scientific activity, how Islamic scientific knowledge was passed to Europe, and what new facets of the relationship between science and Islam have appeared in the post-Scientific Revolution era."

"This is an excellent book. It is a model for any studies on the relation of a particular religious tradition to science."
