A Muslim country influenced by the Arabs and the French, the North African nation of Tunisia is known for a liberal outlook and a diverse cultural history. This wide-ranging study explores the nation today, looking at religion; worldview; literature and media; housing and architecture; cuisine; traditional dress; gender roles, marriage, family, and social customs; and art, music, and dance. The book also examines the themes of continuity and change in Tunisian culture and customs over the nation's multifaceted history. Readers will learn about modern Tunisia, a popular tourist destination with more than 700 miles of Mediterranean coastline. They will also come to appreciate the nation's rich and varied past, which includes settlement by Berbers, Romans, Turks, Arabs, and the French, as well as by the Phoenicians, who founded the major Tunisian city of Carthage some 3,000 years ago.
