Stowasser uses the work of the great 5th/11th century polymath Abu Rayhan al-Blrunl from the Khwarizm as a pivot to rotate her lens to see various aspects of perception of time in the Islamic civilization. Divided into three parts, ("History, Religion, Politics and Time;" "A Medieval Case Study: Cosmology, Technology and Five Eastern Calendars through an Islamic Lens;" and "How Daily Muslim Rituals are Still Performed 'on Time'"), the seven chapters of the book are held together with a weak thread.

A History of the Modern Middle East . An unprecedented history of our involvement in the Middle East that traces our current quandaries there-in Iraq, Israel, Iran, Afghanistan, and elsewhere-back to their roots almost a century ago. Geoffrey Wawro approaches America's role in the Middle East in a fundamentally new way-by encompassing the last.

The vision of Time in the Qur'an is that of a divine gift created for the benefit of humankind. Night and day, and the twelve lunar months of the year, are 'appointed times for the believing people'. Reading the sky for the prayers of the hour has thus for Muslims been a constant reminder of God's providence and power. In her absorbing and illuminating new book, the late Barbara Freyer Stowasser examines the various ways in which Islam has structured, ordered and measured Time. Drawing on examples from Judaism and Christianity, as well as the ancient world, the author shows that while systems of time facilitate the orderly function of vastly different civilizations, in Islam they have always been fundamental. Among other topics, she discusses the Muslim lunar calendar; the rise of the science of astronomy; the remarkable career of al-Biruni, greatest authority in Muslim perceptions of Time; and the impact of technologies like the astrolabe, Indian numerals and paper. The fullest account of the fascinating nexus between Islam and Time ever written, this is a major contribution to the wider history of ideas and religion.
