AN ILLUSION OF HARMONY: SCIENCE AND RELIGION IN ISLAM charts a changing relationship between science and religion in the Islamic world, departing from the usual Western Christian connections and focus and thus providing college-level holdings strong in Middle Eastern studies and spirituality with a unique coverage. From discussions of modern scientific routes possibly foreshadowed in the Quran to issues of intelligent design and the Muslim world, chapters consider history, religious developments, and trends which have pitted Western science's progress against Islamic traditions. A fascinating discourse and a top pick for Middle Eastern holdings.
