Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

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. She provides a vivid and frank portrait of late King Hassan, whom she knew personally and credits with laying the foundations of a modern, pro-Western state and analyzes the pressures his successor, King Mohammed VI has come under to transform the autocratic monarchy into a full-fledged democracy. Howe 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?

About the Author

Marvine Howe, who has reported for The New York Times from Africa, Latin America, Europe, the Middle East and the Balkans, began her career as a free-lance journalist in North Africa. Her first book The Prince and I was about the Moroccan independence movement. Her latest book was Turkey Today: A Nation Divided over Islam's Revival. She lives in Lexington, Virginia, works out of Oeiras, Portugal, and travels frequently in the Islamic world.
