Brian A. Catlos offers a generalist and balanced account on the history of al-Andalus, which is often regarded as the best generalist overview of Muslim Spain. Kingdoms of Faith is a well-written narrative and, unlike Hugh Kennedy’s Muslim Spain and Portugal, Catlos is not only focused on political and military events. Very recommended for those who are looking for neither a very concise nor a very dense account.
