Review:

An outsider looking in offers a good deal of insight. "The Country of the Moors: A Journey From Tripoli in Barbaray to the City of Kairwan" is the work of Edward Rae who in the later nineteenth century traveled through northern Africa and learned much about the Moors, the dominant culture of Islam throughout the region, even visiting holy cities previously forbidden to non-Muslims. A fascinating read of historical travel with plenty to ponder, "The Country of the Moors" is a choice pick and a solid addition to any history collection.
