Power in the Portrayal:
Representations of Jews and Muslims in Eleventh- and Twelfth-Century Islamic Spain
Ross Brann

Book Description | Table of Contents
Introduction [in PDF format]

ENDORSEMENTS:

"This book is a significant contribution to the field. Its new approaches and new interpretations yield extremely interesting and convincing results. With good writing and good translations, Brann deftly guides the reader, even the nonspecialist reader, through the argument."--Mark Cohen, Princeton University, author of Under the Crescent Cross

"Power in the Portrayal makes a groundbreaking contribution both to Jewish studies and to Islamic studies. Impressively up-to-date on the relevant scholarship in several languages, Brann boldly blends social history and literary study to illuminate texts and figures both Jewish and Muslim. Undoubtedly the most significant of these is the large-scale and sustained re-reading of controversies surrounding Samuel ha-Nagid. We now possess, virtually for the first time, a grounded and contextualized understanding of this leading Jewish personality of Muslim Spain."--Steven M. Wasserstrom, Reed College, author of Religion after Religion and Between Muslim and Jew
