This work, now in its seventh edition, gives this popular and peaceful Mediterranean country the pictorial and editorial coverage that its landscapes, peoples, cities and ancient sites deserve. Now famous as the location of "The English Patient" and "Star Wars", Tunisia remains the most sophisticated, tolerant and relaxed state in North Africa. The impact and importance of its past is explained, from Dido's and Hannibal's Carthage through the heyday of the Barbary Coast to the Desert Campaign of the Second World War. As the closest of ancient Rome's African colonies, the country is an archaeologist's delight. The abundance of Punic and Roman sites is such that the first to be excavated are now overgrown again. They complement and contrast with the mosques and minarets of this Muslim land, and the striking white simplicity of its traditional Moorish architecture. As a present-day attraction that stems from the past, there is Tunisia's handsome and hospitable population. The charm of the people in their historic and photogenic land is captured in the pictures and text of this book.
