'Both students and scholars of Andalusi history will find this work refreshing, instructive, and valuable in several respects. Hitchcock directs the reader to tensions between city and village and between center and frontier as central themes in the early history of al-Andalus; he assesses the impact of natural disasters such as droughts and earthquakes on socioeconomic and political history and inclines toward understanding people's movement and behaviors through the lens of political and economic motivation as opposed to religious considerations.'
- Ross Brann, Speculum 89/4 (October 2014)
"a helpful and very much needed resource for students studying the history of medieval Spain. This is especially true at a time when medieval Spain is looked at in order to find paradigms for interreligious relations. Hitchcock offers a helpful corrective where such aspirations could be overstated and helpful analysis of contexts where such possibilities may indeed be found. With this in mind, uslims Spain Reconsidered should be among the small number of texts read by those wanting to learn more about medieval Spain." -- Charles L. Tieszen, Fuller Theological Seminary, Sacramento, slam and Christian-Muslim Relations
