A search of the Toronto Public Library catalogue shows that this valuable book is not in the system. More's the pity. Instead, the TPL has joined the shilling-for-Islamic "science" crowd, and Torontonians have to put up with this:
Science and Technology in the Medieval Islamic World
Tue Feb 08, 2011 6:30 p.m. - 8:00 p.m. 90 mins: Northern DistrictHilariously (unintentionally so, of course), this program is part of the "Thought Exchange" Series.
During the eighth and ninth centuries, while Europe was locked in the Dark Ages, Muslim civilization was at its zenith. Were if not for the scientists and thinkers of the medieval Islamic world, the modern world would not have algebra, modern medicine, astronomy and much else. Guest speaker: Dr. Ingrid Hehmeyer, Associate Professor, History of Science and Technology Ryerson University.
Update: BTW and FYI, last month the TPL had as its featured speaker Karen Armstrong, a noted apologist for Islam.
