About the Author:

Nicholas Badcott is the Arab World Education Officer at the British Museum.

From School Library Journal:

Grade 7 Up—Badcott takes readers on a colorful and captivating tour of Islamic civilizations from the 7th to the 20th century. He discusses the rise and fall of dynasties, along with their achievements and contributions in art, medicine, architecture, commerce, and science. The book focuses on the early Islamic world, including the Umayyads, Abbasids, Fatimids, Seljuqs, and so on, through the Mughals. The writing style is easy to read, and all Islamic or Arabic terminology is italicized. Attractive color photographs of buildings, pottery, jewelry, art, and inventions help maintain readers' interest throughout. An informative but problematic for libraries 12-page detachable time line is included. Unfortunately, there is no glossary, and the suggestions for further reading are all adult titles. The contents and format of this book make it a highly welcome travel guide.—Fawzia Gilani-Williams, An-Noor School, Windsor, Ontario END
