Review:

Reviews of the hardback edition: '"This magnificent volume is surely the most comprehensive of all histories of Islamic Spain...Highly recommended."' J.P. Berkey, "Choice," 1993. '.".. major resource in this field for decades to come."' Roger Allen. '."..monumental collected work...splendid and invaluable volume "' Richard W. Bulliet, "Journal of Islamic Studies," 1994. '."..this work should be praised as an impressive and valuable publication...this obviously indispensable compendium recommended to experts and to everyone interested in the legacy of Muslim Spain."' Maher Jarrar, "Al-Qantara," 1994. '"On ne boudera pas son plaisir a utiliser ce bel ouvrage, et l'on felicitera de la parution de cet ensemble sans equivalent jusqu'ici sur l'Espagne musulmane...un renouvellement important de nos connaissances."' Pierre Guichard, "Bulletin Critique des Annales Islamologiques," 1994. '"This is a significant and scholarly work that is likely to remain of value for some considerable time."' "British Bull. Publ. on Lat.Am., Carribbean, Portugal & Spain," 1995. '"Die fast enzyklopadische Fulle und Ordnung [...] macht das Buch zu einem Standardwerk."' "Neue Burcher Zeitung," 1995. '"We cannot overestimate the value of the book prepared by S.K. Jayyusi and her collaborators as a commemorative volume to celebrate the 500 anniversary of the end of the Islamic statehood in the Iberian Peninsula...a very useful and much expected overall monograph, a sort of a must for every reference library, not only in Oriental studies."' Boguslaw R. Zagorski "Studia Arabistyezne," 1995. '"In the judgement of this reviewer, this monumental work, by scholars who have had previous writings and expertise in their field of research and writing, will remain for a long period to come, the standard reference for those who seek a comprehensive assessment of the range and extent of Muslim Spain's great legacy to our own Western heritage. No library should exclude this magnificent work from its holdings."' Caesar Farah, "Sixteenth Century Journal," 1996. 'The Legacy of Muslim Spain" is a magnificent two-volume collection of studies concerning both the centuries of Muslim occupation of the Iberian Peninsula and the cultural heritage they bequeathed to Christian Spain...The range of disciplines and orientations displayed in the collection is comprehensive. Beautiful color plates illustrate premier examples of Spanish Muslim and Mozarabic art, design, and architecture. The volumes are suitable both for the serious researcher and for the more casual browser through this great period of Western culture...It is not an wxaggeration to say that is it an essential addition to the personal library of any serious student of Spain or of the Middle East."' David Regenspan, "Digest of Middle East Studies," 1996. 'The Legacy of Muslim Spain" is a treasure trove that all those interested in the development of the Iberian peninsula in the Middle Ages can consult with profit." 'Joseph F. O'Callaghan, "Renaissance Quarterly," 1997."
