5.0 out of 5 stars A thoroughly entertaining read 15 May 2001
Until I read this history I had no idea of the complexity of North Africa's history nor of how close Europe came to being a Muslim region through the Arab conquest of much of Spain. It is a highly entertaining read, and highly educational at the same time. I would recommend this to anyone going to Tunisia, Libya, Algeria or Morocco as understanding of the region's history will make your sightseeing far more enjoyable. The book covers the archaic period of Phoenician civilisation via the glory days of Carthage through the Arab invasion to the modern period. Excellent.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Good Way to Whet the Appetite 30 April 2000
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Over all, I've found the Traveller's History series of books to be a bit hit or miss. All are good at providing a good deal of the history of a nation or region, but some do so in a manner that is too dry or terse to make for enjoyable reading. Not so A Traveller's History of North Africa. Covering the land that makes up modern-day Morocco, Tunisia, Libya and Algeria, Barnaby Rogerson does a fantastic job of telling the history of the land and its peoples from the Neolithic era through the Roman Empire and into the 1990s. It is a fascinating tale of survival, conflict, and change that gives a wonderful insight into the historical forces that have shaped the region and its people.
