Conquest of Morocco

Douglas Porch, Author Fromm International $11.95 (335p) ISBN 978-0-88064-057-2
Historian Porch tells the story of France's subjugation of Morocco at the turn of the century, which was to be France's last major colonial acquisition. Drawing on memoirs and other writings, Porch tells how internal challenges to the unstable rule of Sultan Abd ed-Aziz opened the door to the French. He also recreates the clash of cultures and evokes a background of life in Tangiers and the medieval interior of the country. Altogether this history is ""appealing and brightly told,'' PW noted.
