‘1001 Inventions’ edited by Salim T.S. Al-Hassani
During the centuries after the fall of Rome, Muslims made many important scientific and technological advances. Among these are the development of surgical tools, the introduction of the beginnings of algebra, and the perfection of distillation and other chemical processes. “1001 Inventions: The Enduring Legacy of Muslim Civilization’’ (National Geographic) was developed as a companion to the “1001 Inventions’’ exhibition that will be in Washington, D.C. this summer.
