Promotional Information

An outstanding contribution to a very important field. While there has been a great deal of new research on premodern medical texts from the Islamic world, there are few surveys written for a broader public. This text will make a lasting contribution to the history of science in general, and to the study of premodern Islamic medicine in particular. -- Jonathan Brockopp, Director, Program in Religious Studies, Pennsylvania State University
