The Fruits of the Struggle in Diplomacy and War : Moroccan Ambassador al-Ghazzal and His Diplomatic Retinue in Eighteenth-Century Andalusia Hardback
Edited by Travis Landry
This first complete English translation of an eighteenth-century Muslim ambassador's travelogue about Spain uncovers an early example of modern diplomacy and makes plain the significance of Andalusia for one who saw the region through its Islamic past and his own ancestry.
The introduction explains the history of the visit of al-Ghazzal, draws connections to the Enlightenment context, and uses a world literature approach to wed his account to the Moroccan Letters of Jose Cadalso.
