    Need Help Finding Book by Arthur C. Clarke

    So here is the problem: I am looking for a book by Arthur C. Clarke but I can not remember the title, only the plot outline.

    The plot is an alternate history story, in which the battle of Tours was won by the Muslims, resulting in an Muslim Europe and a much faster scientific development, with space travel occuring centuries earlier then in "our world".

    Does anyone know what the title of this story is?

    Sounds like a book of multicultural bullsh*t and pro-islamic imperialism on the West. But, try wikipedia. I find it very helpful when looking for a book. Or try amazon.

    The Fountains of Paradise. The main idea is that Islam would have unified Europe and allowed us to focus on on scientific development, instead we had centuries of internecine warfare between various Christian denominations, non-christians AND Islam. I don't entirely disagree with the idea, although Clarke being unaware of the JQ, completely disregards the racial aspect.
