This book deals with studies on science technology and culture in Indian from tenth to eighteenth century. The nine centuries of India s history covered here have until recently been seen as dark age in the development of science in the country. But it was a period of intense debate and advancement in different fields including science, enriched by the impact of Arabic and Persian scholars into India during which many of the key principles of modern day scientific thinking were established. For those interested in science and technology and their impact on social lives this will prove to be an essential book.
