Darío Fernández-Morera challenges the politically correct idea that al-Andalus was a multicultural paradise and attacks the recent Islamic historiography of the Western academia. The Myth of the Andalusian Paradise is a quite tough read, unlike its opposite The Ornament of the World, but if you read the two you may realize the strengths and weaknesses of the two opposing visions of al-Andalus. The reality was something in between and it changed over time.
