Description

Simon Barton writes one of my favorite studies on Muslim-Christian relations. An aspect that is very often neglected in history books is interfaith relations and sex as power, and that’s the focus of this book. Conquerors Brides and Concubines presents the evolution of interfaith relations, from the early conquest to the post-Muslim Spain period, answering difficult questions such as why Christian-Muslim relations became much more tense after the 10th century, or why the heirs of the Umayyad throne were always sons of Christian concubines. It’s a very interesting survey, but only for readers very interested in the evolution and role of sexuality!
