I mentioned this book in class recently when we were discussing the role of the Arabs (often referred to as los moros) in Spain. I found this book fascinating. Here's a review by a reader, Carolyn Crocker, on Goodreads that I agree with, followed by a scholarly review:
"A work of history that's work to read, this depiction of eras of religious tolerance, devotion to learning, and the excitement of mingled cultures can give us hope for our pluralistic and riven world. The seeds of our literature, science, philosophy are held in this fascinating time. Work, but worthwhile work."
