Description

This book deals with the Muslim Geographical Image of the World and the main geographical ideas and concepts in Muslim thinking in the Middle Ages. The technique is to present the impression made by Arabs and Muslims in the field of geography, cartography and cosmography.

This forced Arabs to become acquainted with geography.show more
