Abstract

L. P. Harvey, Muslims in Spain, 1500-1614 (Chicago and London: University of Chicago Press, 2005), 448 pp., ISBN 0 226 31963 6 (cloth). L. P. Harvey’s Muslims in Spain, 1500-1614 carries on from the author’s earlier volume Islamic Spain, 1250-1500 . The book’s main focus is the subject of the study; namely the Muslims of Spain. They, rather than the royal decrees of the Spanish and Portuguese monarchs, are the starting point of the narrative and its reference. The shift in perspective puts the main milestones of the Catholicization of Spain in a di ff erent light.
