Globalization of Knowledge: Islam and Its Contributions

Front Cover
Trafford Publishing, Aug 31, 2011 - History - 340 pages
Lately, Islam has been enduring considerable pressure and criticism for its violent nature and its involvement with anti-social activities, such as terrorism, assassinations, suicide bombings, etc. Some evidence of the growing awareness of Islam and its efforts of peaceful co-existence has come to light in the form of increased interest in reading history and about the past events. This awareness is not sufficient. The authors in their book, Globalization of Knowledge, have endeavoured to dispel this undue criticism. In this treatise, the authors have undertaken to illustrate Islam and its efforts for creating and maintaining a peaceful and harmonious global village. They have also brought to the attention of the readers contributions of the Islamic Civilization to human knowledge, particularly the preservation and further advancements in philosophy, sciences, astronomy and other social disciplines. The book is an easy reading and full of information. Readers can learn vicariously from the Islamic contributions to human knowledge.
