Awards, Reviews & Star Ratings

NZ Review Our schools should begin to teach the histories, cultures, arts and languages of the Islamic nations. -Wendell Berry, Poet, Writer, Farmer An excellent little book aimed essentially at younger readers, but informative for those of any age. Initially, the author provides some welcome historical context. . . The focus then turns to Arab science and invention in a bustling, cosmopolitan society unified by a common language: Arabic. This book has many excellent illustrations and insets that expand on the main topics presented. --Science
