"Es de agradecer... que en el libro se intenten abordar los temas con puntos de vista renovados. Los articulos proponen nuevos enfoques... y algunos lo hacen desde atractivas aproximaciones pluridisciplinares que abren perspectivas ineditas en el estudio de la cultura material de al-Andalus."
Susana Calvo Capilla, Al-Qantara XXX/1 (January-June 2009), pp. 274-9
"Revisiting al-Andalus marque cependant une inflexion d'importance par rapport a son illustre devancier... Les ouvelles perspectives ici menagees font la part belle a la reflexion archeologique et a l'etude de la culture materielle... des bonnes surprises contenues dans Revisiting al-Andalus... Destine avant tout a un public anglo-saxon, l'ouvrage remplit bien son role de "produit d'appel" a de nouvelles investigations portant sur al-Andalus. ...Formons l'espoir que Revisiting al-Andalus suscite, en la matiere, de nouvelles vocations dans le champ academique anglais et americain, et permette aux remarquables travaux des collegues espagnols et portugais (et plus largement europeens) de connaitre enfin l'audience et la reconnaissance qu'ils meritent."
Jean-Pierre van Staevel, Bulletin Critique des Annales Islamologiques (BCAI) 24 (2008), pp. 153-5
Revisiting al-Andalus brings together a range of recent scholarship on the material culture of Islamic Iberia, highlighting especially the new directions that have developed in the Anglo-American branch of this field since the 1992 catalogue of the influential exhibition, Al-Andalus: the Art of Islamic Spain. Together with examples of recent Spanish scholarship on medieval architecture and urbanism, the volume's contributors (historians of art and architecture, archaeologists, and architects) explore topics such as the relationship between Andalusi literature and art; architecture, urbanism, and court culture; domestic architecture; archaeology as a tool for analyzing economic and architectural history; cultural transfer between the Iberian Peninsula and the New World; 19th-century "rediscovery" of al-Andalus; and modern architectural and historiographical attempts to construct an Andalusi cultural identity.
Contributors include: Antonio Almagro, Glaire D. Anderson, Rebecca Bridgman, María Judith Feliciano, Kathryn Ferry, Pedro Jiménez, Julio Navarro, Camila Mileto, Antonio Orihuela, Jennifer Roberson, Cynthia Robinson, Mariam Rosser-Owen, Antonio Vallejo Triano, and Fernando Vegas.
