Muhammad Ahsan, a dedicated research scholar, has extensively published on social and economic issues particularly in relation to the Muslim world… This book… represents a significant contribution towards a better understanding of the Muslim world and its often overlooked contribution to a range of sciences and academic disciplines. The timing of the publication is particularly pertinent when the doom-laden predictions of Samuel Huntington's The Clash of Civilizations and The Remaking of World Order are beginning to be give greater credence. Muhammad Ahsan conveys a sense of rich cultural heritage within the Muslim world. Moreover, he also stresses the centrality within Islamic teaching of improving one's education.
This book will be educational for Muslims and, particularly, non-Muslims alike. The aim of this work is to highlight the civilizing advances that arose from the Muslim world. Hopefully, a greater awareness of this will lead to an increased understanding of the development of Muslim culture and the contribution it continues to make to patterns of global development.
