From Empire to Independence

C.R. Pennell

Beginning with Morocco’s incorporation into the Roman Empire, this book charts the country’s uneasy passage to the 21st century and reflects on the nation of citizens that is emerging from a diverse population of Arabs, Berbers, and Africans. This history of Morocco provides a glimpse of an imperial world, from which only the architectural treasures remain, and a profound insight into the economic, political, and cultural influences that will shape this country’s future.

"The best overview available in English. Pennell displays his mastery of the extensive body of literature on Morocco. An exemplar of a national history survey."
Digest of Middle East Studies
"Pennell undertakes an ambitious endeavour and accomplishes it in a remarkable fashion. Much more readable than similar works on the history of North Africa."
The Middle East Journal
