Taking his interest in the Islamic conquest to its northwestern frontier Lane-Pool here considers the history of the Moors in Spain. Beginning with the end of the Goth reign in Spain he moves on to a plain account of the conquest. The famous battles and their various outcomes are recorded. Spain divided along the territory of Andalusia was now under the influence of the Moors. Lane-Pool narrates the adventures of Abdur-Rahman and his role in the history of southern Spain where Christians were martyred and he eventually became the great khalif. Skirmishes and battles between the Muslim and Christian populations of Spain and the wonders of Cordova are likewise narrated. Takeover by the Berbers and the rise of El Cid are included in the broad sweep of the conquest. The establishment and fall of Granada mark the final events covered in this history. A gripping account for students of history this treatment of the Islamic presence in Europe is a solid piece of research that has stood the test of time.

Stanley Lane-Poole (1854-1931) was a British Orientalist and archaeologist. He began his career in the British Museum but moved to Egypt where he worked as an archaeologist. He later became Professor of Arabic Studies at Dublin University.
