Description from the publisher:
When Science and civilization was published originally in 1968 by the Harvard University Press, it was the first work in the English Language to deal with the whole of Islamic Science. Based on the century of scholarship by Western historians of science and Islamicists as well as the scholarship of Muslim scholars, the work sought to present Islamic science not as a chapter in the history of western science, but as an integral aspect of Islamic civilization and the Islamic intellectual traditions. This book has played and continues to play a humble role in this historic debate. It continues to be taught and studied in many universities in both the Islamic and west world.
