Abstract

This long chapter offers a new interpretation of the principal Christian and Muslim polities in Spain, as well as the relationships between them; it argues that the overarching frameworks of the period - feudalism or reconquest, convivencia or instability - fail to do justice to the complex nature of medieval Iberian politics and society. The chapter also reviews the scholarly literature on topics as diverse as convivencia, governmental structures and the economic basis of rule.
