PDF A History of Medieval Spain

Book description

"Joseph O'Callaghan has now given us, for the first time, a solid and in-depth survey in English on the peninsular kingdoms, drawing together the myriad recent contributions, with the expertise of a recognized scholar in the field and the practicality of a long-time teacher of the topic.... Competence, thorough inclusiveness, clear organization, and solidity are the qualifiers which best sum O'Callaghan's accomplishment."—The History Teacher

"This book is a comprehensive narrative history based on an impressively wide reading in the sources and secondary literature. It should prove useful to teachers, students, and general readers in European history.... Soundly traditional in its organization, it gives primacy to political events without neglecting institutional, social, and cultural matters."—The American Historical Review

"O'Callaghan has met a major, long-felt need with a clearly written, balanced, thorough survey that belongs in every history collection. His Spain is the entire peninsula—Islamic, Jewish, Christian, Portuguese, and Catalonian as well as Castilian. A substantial political narrative is followed by chapters on government, social and economic developments, and religion and culture. The author even-handedly represents the major sides in disputed issues, for hism aim is to present the current state of scholarship in a simple narrative form. He has succeeded admirably."—Library Journal

"There is no existing substitute for this volume in English for the undergraduate of graduate student seeking a reliable orientation to medieval peninsular history."—Choice

Joseph F. O'Callaghan is Professor of Medieval History and Director of the Center for Medieval Studies, Fordham University.
