Reviews
Science, Medicine, and Math in the Early Islamic World

Science, Medicine, and Math shows how advanced Islamic cultures were in these areas and how much Europe learned from them. Romanek covers both methodologies and notable Islamic names. This useful series is written with respect and appeal; boldfaced introductory paragraphs and plenty of sidebars draw readers in. The books are full of terrific examples of Islamic artwork (along with some contemporary photographs) that heighten and brighten the pages. — Ilene Cooper, Booklistonline.com, 08/12
