In Moorish Spain Richard Fletcher presents a concise overview of all the different Muslim states of the Iberian Peninsula, from 711 to 1492. He avoids the romanticization or demonization of al-Andalus, and rather attempts to compact the history of Muslim Spain in a concise and accessible account for the general reader. It can be dense because Fletcher had to condense the information of a very long period in 200 pages, but it’s great for those who want to understand the big picture of Muslim Spain.
