Around the globe, concerns about interfaith relations have led to efforts to find earlier models in Muslim Iberia (al-Andalus). The first study to undertake a wide-ranging comparison of invocations of al-Andalus across the Arab and Hispanic worlds, this book examines how Muslim Iberia operates as an icon or symbol of identity in twentieth and twenty-first century narrative, drama, television, and film from the Arab world, Spain, and Argentina.
