Description
What do coffee beans, torpedoes, surgical scalpels, arches, and observatories all have in common? Were Leonardo Da Vinci’s flight ideas original? Who devised the casing for pill capsules and where did Fibonacci learn to flex his mathematical fingers?

All these answers can be found here in ‘1001 Inventions: Muslim Heritage in Our World,’ written in an accessible style for those with limited knowledge of either Islam or history.

This book presents the innovative science and technology of Muslims from the 7th to the 17th century, illustrating how their inventions and developments have contributed to our civilization today, with a forward by Sir Roland Jackson, Chief Executive of The British Association for the Advancement of Science.

This smaller edition of the original book is the official companion to the National Geographic Society's exhibit on the same subject. In paperback, this edition features roughly 80% of the overall content, the missing stuff being primarily indexes and glossaries in the beginning and end of the original print and a few secondary images and insets from various parts of the main body.
Author: Salim T. S. Al-Hassani & Elizabeth Woodcock & Dr. Rabah Saoud
