"Lost History delivers a missing link to the story of an interconnected world: the achievements of Muslim civilization and its influence on East and West." Jimmy Carter
"This book, with its aim of telling an often untold story, is a welcome addition to the literature about Islam's cultural and intellectual history as well as its relationship with the West." King Abdullah II of Jordan
"Michael Morgan gives us a gift by restoring a history that has been lost for too long. Lost History should be read by every person who suspects that there is more to the story than the tired cliches of a 'clash of civilizations.' " Edward L. Widmer, John Carter Brown Library
“Lost History is an anti–text to the literature of inevitable decline and titanic clash, a robustly researched work of popular history … interpretively venturesome and felicitously written panorama of Islamic thought and science.” David Levering Lewis, two–time Pulitzer Prize winner for his biographies of W.E.B. DuBois. Lewis’ most recent book is God's Crucible: Islam and the Making of Europe, 570–1215 (2008).
"One of the best five books of the last 10 years." Terry England, The New Mexican
“Morgan laments the mass ignorance of the astonishing impact of Islam on the Western world. Lost History goes a long way towards correcting these misconceptions.” Kirkus Reviews
