Description from the publisher: This description of the contribution of the Muslim countries to world culture reaches from the beginnings of Islam to the present day. The geographical area covered comprises primarily Southern and Central Asia, and northern and equatorial Africa; however pertinent information concerning both North and South America is provided, as well as of Europe.
This work is not a hastily compiled volume. The author has investigated these areas of the world for decades, and taught related courses in well-known universities in the United States and Canada. His lecture notes were constantly updated through reading, contacts with natives of the area, as well as travel, research and lecturing in many of the countries discussed. The book you have before you is the result of synthesising all these activities.
