Synopsis

Containing an updated chronology, additional entries, and an enlarged bibliography, this second edition of the Historical Dictionary of Tunisia offers interested historians the information they need for continued research into this unique African nation. As a link between Arab and African worlds and the European community, this small country has managed to maintain a stable position in the ever-shifting North African political climate under the sure leadership of Habib Bourguiba and Zine el-Abidine Ben Ali. The Dictionary focuses primarily on the period from the introduction of Islam in the seventh century A.D. to the present, but the inclusion of materials from the Carthagian and Roman eras acknowledges the area's rich pre-Islamic heritage. Each entry of the original edition has been reviewed to ensure accuracy and, where appropriate, revised to take the most recent scholarship and statistical data into account. These updates are supplemented by many new entries, so that the dictionary contains the most up-to-date information available on such aspects of contemporary Tunisia as its education system, economy, relations with other countries, social structure, and tourist industry. An extensive bibliography, arranged chronologically and topically, lists European-language books and periodicals on Tunisia. Contains a chronology, maps, and list of rulers from 800-1996. This edition is a timely, comprehensive and definitive reference work on a country that has, for centuries, stood at the crossroads of European and Islamic worlds. Reviews of the previous edition: "A valuable addition to the comparatively small collection of reference works about Tunisia..This is a useful, valuable and needed addition..." CHOICE ..".highly recommended for university and research collections." AFRICAN STUDIES REVIEW "This ... volume is a gold mine for the general and historically oriented reader or researcher on Tunisia." MESA BULLETIN
