"Provides a comprehensive, clairvoyant, and rich study of a number of issues affecting the Maghreb on the eve of the 21st century."--Yehuda Lukacs, George Mason University

This collection addresses the major problems that Maghreb countries--Algeria, Morocco, Tunisia, and Libya--have faced in the last two decades and the cultural and economic issues facing them today, an unusually wide-ranging interdisciplinary study that brings together scholars from the region of North Africa itself as well as from the U.S. and Europe.
