The History Of The Mohammedan Dynasties In Spain, Volume 2 - Al-Maqqari

Although the Muslims in medieval Spain left behind an expansive literature, little of it has been translated into English (although quite a bit has been translated into Spanish and French). Not only is this a readable and interesting history, but the translator has included a lot of well-chosen excerpts of other works in the appendix. It also deals extensively with the Almohads and the last Emirate of Granada, which both tend to be neglected in English-language scholarship.
