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.
