Reviews - What do customers think about The Legacy of Muslim Spain (Handbook of Oriental Studies : the Near and Middle East, Vol. 12)?

Exception reference now at an afforadable price  Jan 22, 2001
Now that this major contribution to the history and culture of Andalusian Spain during the heyday of high medieval Muslim culture is available in a paper edition, this text should be considered for course work as there is quite simply no other resource like it in English that attempts to provide a fulsome account of Islam in Spain.
