The Muslim Conquest of Spain and the Legacy of al-Andalus

By: Husain, Shahnaz


Language: English


"The Muslim Conquest of Spain" narrates the story of how Muslims were invited to come to the Iberian Peninsula - the region that covers modern Spain and Portugal - to help different Christian kingdoms at loggerheads with each other over the sovereignty of their country. It covers the history of the initial foundations of al-Andalus - the name given to Islamic Spain - through to the departure of the men who had taken the initiative to conquer the country.

Nearly eight hundred years of Muslim rule has left a cultural legacy of gigantic proportions that remains to this day on the Iberian Peninsula. The dynamic nature of the territorial expansion further into Europe, undertaken by subsequent Muslim leaders, is also considered. This proves to be a fascinating story that will captivate readers, teenagers and adults alike, while giving an insight into a remarkable period of Islamic history.
