'Islam and Science, is the first important study of the works of Nizam al-Din al-A'raj al-Nisaburi (1270-1330), an Iranian polymath born in Nishapur to a Shi'i family.]...[Morrisson's book is most interesting and should attract the attention of all scholars interested in Islamic thought. To the best of my knowledge, it is the first serious appraoch to the historical interactions between science and Islam.]...[The book can be read without too much knowledge of the technical astronomy. The volume is well presented with a complete chronology of al-Nisaburi's works. ' - Julio Samso, International Journal of Middle East Studies. 42 (2010)
