Blood and Faith: The Purging of Muslim Spain 1492 based on 0 ratings. 1 reviews.
Fear of the strangers in our midst, economic dependence on their labor, ethnic cleansing -- sound familiar? Welcome to 16th century Spain! Carr brings together many the vast amount of primary and secondary source material into a readable history of the expulsion of the Moriscos from Spain that echoes many contemporary concerns. I would have given it a higher rating if the book had included maps and illustrations.
