Following The Arab Conquest of Spain 710-797, Roger Collins summarizes the history of Spain from the reign of al-Hakam to the fall of the Umayyad Caliphate of Córdoba. The leading Medievalist historian also debunks myths of the existing scholarship of this complex period, although as all works of Collins it’s a pretty dry lecture, adequate for those who want an informative and well-researched account but not for those who want a fascinating and engaging narrative.
