This volume deals specifically with recent original research in the history of Chinese, Korean, Japanese, Islamic, and Indian astronomy. It strikes a balance between landmarks in the history of ancient and medieval astronomy in the Orient on one hand, and on the other the transmission of European astronomy into the countries of the Orient. Most contributions are based on research by experts in this field. The book also indicates the status of astronomy research in non-European cultural areas of the world. It will be of interest to historians of astronomy and science, and students of cultural heritage.
