Medievalist historian Joseph F. O’Callaghan writes a comprehensive and in-depth book on the Middle Ages of Spain and Portugal that encompasses the history of Spain from the fall of the Western Roman Empire to the reign of the Catholic Monarchs. For its price, it’s a bargain. Professor O’Callaghan gives primacy to political and military events, but he also covers aspects such as institutions, society, economy, religion and culture. A History of Medieval Spain is the best one-volume book on the history of Medieval Spain, and it’s great for both general history readers and students.
