520 8  This is the first book in English to provide a 
       comprehensive account of the rise and fall of the 
       Almoravids and the Almohads, the two most important Berber
       dynasties of the medieval Islamic west, an area that 
       encompassed southern Spain and Portugal, Morocco, Algeria 
       and Tunisia. The Sanhaja Almoravids emerged from the 
       Sahara in the 1050s to conquer vast territories and halt 
       the Christian advance in Iberia. They were replaced a 
       century later by their rivals, the Almohads, supported by 
       the Masmuda Berbers of the High Atlas. Although both have 
       often been seen as uncouth, religiously intolerant 
       tribesmen who undermined the high culture of al-Andalus, 
       this book argues that the eleventh to thirteenth centuries
       were crucial to the Islamisation of the Maghrib, its 
       integration into the Islamic cultural sphere, and its 
       emergence as a key player in the western Mediterranean, 
       and that much of this was due to these oft-neglected 
       Berber empires.
