Science in the Medieval World: Book of the Categories of Nationsby Said Al-Andalusi, Sema'an I. Salem (Translator), Alok Kumar (Translator)
During the Middle Ages, a thriving center for learning and research was Muslim Spain, where students gathered to consult Arabic manuscripts of earlier scientific works and study with famous teachers. One of these teachers was Sa'id al-Andalusi, who contributed to the science of all known nations by his writings. Today, it is one of few surviving medieval Spanish Muslim texts, and this is its first English translation.
