Publisher's Summary

First published in 1866, The Moors in Spain is a classic in Middle Eastern history and has been an important work in this category for over a century. For a number of years, there were few works of history that covered non-Christian civilizations, especially those written in English. Thanks to Stanley Lane-Poole’s dedication to the study of Egypt and Middle Eastern histories, there are several classic examples of those that can be studied.

One of the most profound setbacks to modern civilization was the decline of the Moorish Empire. Africa and the Middle East is where civilization truly began. If this African civilization had succeeded, the world would be far more advanced than it is today. Poole’s history of the Moorish Empire is the story of their magnificence, as well as the empire’s tragic downfall. This book is a must for any serious student of African history and the classics.

Stanley Lane-Poole spent his life chronicling the history of Egypt and the Middle East. He was also the author of several biographies that cover the lives of well-known historical figures.
