'This is a splendid contribution to our knowledge of recent North African developments. It is remarkably comprehensive, with excellent country surveys, region-wide and international-strategic analyses. The chapters are up-to-date, meticulously researched and sober in their conclusions. Anyone with a serious interest in North Africa – professors, students, policy makers, businesspeople – will find this volume indispensable.' - Michael C. Hudson, Georgetown University, USA
'This is a fine collection filled with insightful chapters by leading specialists. The volume makes an important contribution to our understanding of both recent developments and continuing trends in Arab North Africa. I recommend it highly.'- Mark Tessler, University of Michigan, USA
'A timely exploration by distinguished North African and Western scholars of the conflicts throughout the region between traditional North African regime policies of "robust authoritarianism" and popular aspirations for change. I highly recommend it.' - Ambassador Richard B. Parker, Middle East Institute, Washington DC, USA
'The editors have assembled a first-rate team of scholars of the Maghreb to address key issues of political evolution, regional dynamics, and global strategy as the states of North Africa cope with the era of the 'war on terrorism.' - Robert Mortimer, Haverford College, USA
'The volume provides a broad range of important and up-to-date information and analysis on the reality of life in the North African region. The book offers a deep and wide ranging analysis of issues relating to each of the five seperate countries and also looks at regional and international relations, including such topics as the relations between France and the Maghreb, and the politics of Berber identity in Algerian and Morocco.]...[North Africa fills a vacuum in the scholarly Maghreb literature and is a must-read for anyone wishing better to understand the region. Most of its components stand on their own and can be used in university studies.' - Yehudit Ronen, Middle East Quarterly, Spring 2010--This text refers to the Hardcover edition.

I purchased this book as a required text for a graduate course on North Africa development. I would recommend it to anyone interested in gaining a firm foundation of North African politics and economy pre-Arab Spring.
