In Morocco, Marvine Howe, a former correspondent for The New York Times presents an incisive and comprehensive review of the Moroccan kingdom and its people, past and present. It addresses emerging issues and problems - equal rights for women, elimination of corruption and correction of glaring economic and social disparities - and asks the fundamental question: can this ancient Muslim kingdom embrace western democracy in an era of deepening divisions between the Islamic world and the West?

MEDIA REVIEWS
This is a very special book and everyone who is going to Morocco or is seriously interested in that country should have it. * Richard B. Parker, Former Ambassador to Morocco *
Here we have a bird's-eye view of Morocco today as seen through the eyes of a seasoned reporter who has had a long love affair with the country. Her firsthand account of the early days of nationhood when Morocco's destiny hung in the balance is especially absorbing and well worth the retelling.
An impressive range of sources, testimony and intriguing anecdote ... Her book is a war cry for humane liberal principles, for social involvement, for a vigorously engaged society. * Barnaby Rogerson, Times Literary Supplement *
displays all the readability of a journalistic piece...Howe is to be commended for a lucid, broad and thorough panorama of contemporary Morocco that is required reading for people unfamiliar with the country. * The Muslim World Book Review, 26:3 *
