1001 Inventions Receives Award from the UK Association of Muslim Social Scientists

The AMSS UK is pleased to announce that its prestigious Building Bridges Award for 2009 has been jointly given to the British Council, in recognition of the 'Our Shared Europe' project which seeks to generate awareness and better understanding of Muslim contributions to European culture and society; and to 1001 Inventions - Muslim Heritage in Our World, in recognition of the notable contribution of the 1001 Inventions educational project to reveal the rich heritage that the Muslim community share with other communities in the UK, Europe and across the World. Both awards were presented during the third AMSS(UK) Annual Zaki Badawi Memorial Lecture held on 5th June 2009 at the University of Westminster, London, UK.





We just can't say enough great things about 1001 inventions - it's a new arrival at TTQ and we are incredibly impressed with this book. To call it informative would be selling it short; this is one incredible book! Packed with interesting facts, this is an enlightening guide to the numerous contributions that the Muslim community has made to the world - you might be surprised by how much you learn! This is one you'll want to share with everyone you know. There are high quality illustrations, a map and timeline of Muslim achievements and even biographies of Muslim scientists and other luminaries.

Highly recommended.
