Examines the socially induced processes of landscape change in the Iberian peninsula across the moving border between Christians and Muslims and sociopolitical developments after the Christian triumph. Also demonstrates the application of a universalizing hypothesis of landscape change and the organization of rural society. Covering the entire period from the Islamic conquest of the Visigoths to the lower Middle Ages, describes and interprets the maze of recent archaeological results that have been virtually ignored in English scholarship. Distributed in the US by St. Martin's Press. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
