"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

"Perkins has managed to condense an astonishing amount of complex documentation and information...in a clear, spare, but elegant style." (The International Journal of African Historical Studies)
"...the entries provide a readable, fascinating history of this Maghreb country...this work should be purchased by all reference libraries with collections in North African studies. General collections should seriously consider it..." (Arba)
