Publisher's Description

Roger Collins, a leading historian, investigates a time in Spanish history known for its multi-religious society - when Christians, Jews and Muslims lived in apparent harmony - revealing a fuller, more complex picture of this fascinating period.

  • A broad and complex treatment of the tenure of the Umayyad dynasty in Spain
  • Debunks myths and investigates the historiography of existing scholarship of the period

Editorial Reviews

“A blessing for faculty, but also a very useful introduction for students.”  (H-Soz-u-Kult, March 2014)

“Caliphs and Kings: Spain, 796–1031is a book for readers who seek interesting stories culled from Christian historical sources from the period from 796–1031, rather than for those who seek a book on the caliphal aspects of the same period.” (Project Muse, 1 June 2014)

“Supported by useful royal genealogies and a vast bibliography. Summing Up: Highly recommended. All levels/libraries.” (Choice, 1 November 2012)
