The Myth of the Andalusian Paradise

The Myth of the Andalusian Paradise: Muslims, Christians, and Jews under Islamic Rule in Medieval Spain by Darío Fernández-Morera

A historical work, discussing history before, during, and after the period.  Also the legal systems -- Muslim, Christian, Jewish -- that prevailed there (inside and outside communities).  In particular dwelling on the conflicts inside religious communities and between them.  An excellent survey that debunks a lot of myths.
