Morocco: From Empire to Independence
Oneworld, 2003 - 222 pages
"Beginning with Morocco's incorporation into the Roman Empire, this is a tale of fearsome pirates, a bloody struggle against colonisation, and an equally hard-won independence. It charts Morocco's uneasy passage to the twenty-first century, and reflects on the nation of citizens that is finally emerging from a diverse population of Arabs, Berbers, and Africans." "The story of a country at the crossroads of two continents, this history of Morocco provides a glimpse of an imperial world of which only the architectural treasures remain, and a profound insight into the economic, political, and cultural influences that will shape this fascinating country's future." --Book Jacket.
