Abstract:This book is the product of an international conference held in Tunis in 1998. The conference addressed the issue of the Maghrib as a space where worlds have met throughout history, emphasizing its central role in shaping those encounters. The nine essays included in the book offer some of the latest research on North African history from the early centuries of Islam until the eve of decolonization.
