Consisting of 49 essays on broad topics by an international group of specialists (many of the essays were translated into English for this work), this two-volume work offers students and academics a reliable one- stop source on the history, language, literature, art, architecture, music, philosophy, science, and religion of this rich and versatile culture. Chapter topics include urbanism in Granada, Andalusi notions of the northern Christians, Hispano-Arabic poetry, the legacy of Islam in Spanish literature, the social history of Muslim Spain, and an overview of the economy of al-Andalus. The volumes are illustrated with color and b&w plates. This volume is a reprint of the 1994 hardcover original edition.
