Description

Of the many books devoted to the influence of the Moors in Spain, most are written for the historian, or at least for the reader who has a considerable understanding of the background to that great cultural blossoming. The general reader, therefore, will welcome the present work which, far from attempting the chronological study of that subject, takes the form of a travelogue through those regions of Spain where the evidence of Moorish occupation remains most strong. En route the reader is introduced to the living history of the Spanish landscape, and thus is brought to understand the course of that great conquest, and to appreciate its lasting influence upon Spain and, indeed, the whole of Europe. 'Spain from the South' has a further attraction in that it was first published in 1928, and describes the rugged beauty of the countryside and townscapes of Spain unspoilt by the effects of recent conflicts and modern urban development.show more
