Summary
This book takes a fascinating look at the role of the Arab-Islamic world in the rise of the West. It examines the cultural transmission of ideas and institutions in a number of key areas, including science, philosophy, humanism, law, finance, commerce, as well as the Arab- Islamic world's overall impact on the Renaissance, the Reformation and the Enlightenment. Through this survey of cultural exchange and borrowing, the book challenges received Eurocentric narratives of the rise of the West. It also offers a timely and important discussion of the implications of this shared history for contemporary trans-cultural relations
