Hugh Kennedy writes a balanced survey on the history of Muslim Spain, that focuses almost solely on political and military events, based on Arab sources. Much like Kingdoms of Faith, Muslim Spain and Portugal‘s aim is to satisfy the general reader that doesn’t want a very short or long account on al-Andalus. You can buy any of the two for that purpose, although if you care more about culture, economy and other aspects you might better get a copy of Kingdoms of Faith.
