Short description
Caliphs and Kings explores the three hundred year rule of the Umayyad dynasty in Spain (756-1031), a period still remembered by the beautiful architecture and art left behind when civil war destroyed the Cordoba caliphate. Illustrating the dividing--not uniting--forces of this period in Spanish history, Caliphs and Kings challenges the popular idea that the Umayyad reign was a time of simplistic, multicultural peace, and shows that its true dimensions were far more complex--much like multicultural relationships today.
