Dominion of the Arabs in Spain : A History
Jose Conde's classic work was a pioneering history of the Arabs in Spain during the period of their domination (c.700-1500). It was the first work on the subject to explore Arabic texts and it had a lasting influence on Hispano-Arabic studies. It has been successfully published in Spanish, English, German and Italian editions. The new Introduction by Richard Hitchcock not only provides valuable historical and political context on this monumental work but provides an important a re-appraisal of Conde, whose role in unearthing the history of al-Andalus, he feels, has been much undervalued.
