Matthew Carr explores how the Hispanic monarchy first expelled or forced the conversion of the Sephardic Jews, and then how the same happened to the Moriscos in the early 17th century. Blood and Faith is an insightful account of the religious and ethnic repression and cleansing, in the pursue of a religiously unified and Catholic Spain. The author also establishes a parallelism between that historical situation with the current issues of immigration and cultural, ethnic and religious issues.
