The civilization of medieval Muslim Spain is perhaps the most brilliant and prosperous of its age. It has proved essential to the direction which civilization in medieval Europe took. In this monumental, collected work, all major aspects of Islamic civilization in medieval Spain, including its influence on medieval Christianity, are dealt with in a comprehensive manner.

The purpose of this book is to draw attention to the sites of life, politics and culture where current and past generations of the Islamic world have made their mark. Unlike many previous volumes dealing with the city in the Islamic world, this one has been expanded not only to include snapshots of historical fabric, but also to deal with the transformation of this fabric into modern and contemporary urban entities. Salma Khadra Jayyusi was awarded Cultural Personality of the Year by the Sheikh Zayed Book Award for her profound contribution to Arabic literature and culture in 2020. The paperback edition of The City in the Islamic World was published to celebrate the occasion.
