Product description

Review

"Readers interested in more detailed accounts of Spanish history will ... find this book very accessible." British Bulletin of Publications

"There is much to admire and enjoy in this volume highly readable and impressively researched work." History

From the Back Cover

Between the end of Roman rule in the early fifth century and the Arab conquest in the eighth, Spain s destiny lay with the Visigoths, a confederacy of different ethnic groups formed in the Balkans in the later fourth century. Taking account of important new documentary evidence and of the latest archaeological findings, the author presents a wealth of original theories, challenging many traditional assumptions about Visigothic Spain about how the Visigothic kingdom was governed, law in the kingdom, the nature and methods of the Arab conquest, and the rise of Spain as an intellectual force in the West.

The book falls into two parts: the first providing a chronological overview of political and military events; the second reviewing the evidence for social life and organization in Visigothic Spain. A historiographical introduction summarizes the current state of research on the history and archaeology of the period.
