Morocco Under King Hassan by Stephen O. Hughes

Book Description

Written by a foreign correspondent resident in Morocco since 1952, "Morocco under King Hassan" is an impartial chronicle of all the major events in the North African kingdom during this period, relating how the king, who claimed to be a direct descendant to the Prophet Muhammad, reigned for more than thirty years, despite attempts by leftists, the military and Muslim fundamentalists to overthrow him. The book covers the nationalist struggle for independence, conflicts with neighbouring Algeria, the guerrilla war in Western Sahara and all other major political, economic and social developments that have turned Morocco into a multiparty democracy with a liberal economic system that makes it unique in the Arab world. "Morocco under King Hassan" provides a fascinating insight into the inner workings of an endearing and complex country which will provide the reader with a better understanding and appreciation of Morocco and the Moroccans. Consisting of 37 chapters, it is designed as a handbook for both the specialist and general reader.
