Could you please tell me the names of some good history books that talk about the Moors?  I am interested in learning how the Moors and the Muslims interacted.






Dear Judy,


There are lots of books available on Moorish history, including some that narrow the geography down. Here are a few from which you might take a pick:

The Moorish Empire: A Historical Epitome, by Budgett Meakin (1902)

History of the Moorish Empire in Europe, by Samuel Parsons Scott

The Story of the Moors in Spain, by Stanley Lane-Poole and Arthur Gilman

Morocco and the Moors, by Dr. Arthur Larned (1872)
