History of Oriental Astronomy: Proceedings of the Joint Discussion-17 at the 23rd General Assembly of the International Astronomical Union, Organised by the Commission 41 (History of Astronomy), Held in Kyoto, August 25-26, 1997 by Springer (Paperback, 2010)
This volume deals specifically with recent original research in the history of Chinese, Korean, Japanese, Islamic, and Indian astromy. It strikes a balance between landmarks in the history of ancient and medieval astromy in the Orient on one hand, and on the other the transmission of European astromy into the countries of the Orient. Most contributions are based on research by experts in this field. The book also indicates the status of astromy research in n-European cultural areas of the world. It will be of interest to historians of astromy and science, and students of cultural heritage.
