What made Muslim Spain a unique and successful society? Richard Hitchcock explores the background to its powerful legacy in the formation of modern Spain, using a chronological framework while constantly keeping in view the shifting social patterns caused by the changing balance between townand country, major and minor dynasties, foreign groupings and repeated invasions from North Africa.You'll learn about the main historical developments in depth, such as the self-defeating independence of the Taifas, the so-called "Party Kings", and the prolonged colonisation of the Muslim subject population under the increasingly severe dominance of the Kingdoms of Aragon and Castile. You'll alsofind wide-ranging discussion of important topics such as inter-faith relations, multi-ethnic competing groups and how intellectual life was enriched by pluralism and influences from abroad.

He is author or editor of several books including The Kharjas (Boydell and Brewer), Studies on the Muwassah and the Kharja (Ithaca Press), Mozarebs in Medieval and Early Modern Spain (Ashgate) and The Arab Influence in Medieval Europe (Ithaca Press).
