Alex M., you have several times posted around the general
subject regarding what voyages of Discovery the Arabs
might have done, or not done.
(i.e. if they had kept control of Iberian Peninsula)
I would think you would enjoy reading in one book I recently
purchased and am working on.
It is "The Discoverers, A history of man's search to know
his world and himself" by Daniel J. Boorstin.
It has 8 full pages specifically devoted to
"Why not the Arabs". And plenty others that touch it.
It is commonly available in libraries.

One amazon review I find very valid:
5.0 out of 5 stars Knowledge and fun in bits and pieces

Format: Hardcover|Verified Purchase
A wondrous exploration of discoveries of all kinds. In fact, a
celebration of mankind and his voluminous accomplishments. This is all
presented in an entertaining way. And, it need not be read in the way
presented. Skip around a bit and have some fun. Even take a time-out to
read a novel, but this could be your come-back-to-book for the year.
Have a great, knowledgeable read all year - however you wish to arrange it!
