Continuity and Change in the Tunisian Sahel
The Tunisian Sahel is an extraordinary region for study. A unique and marginal zone in terms of its climate; its relationship to Europe and in its geo-political position as an Arab country in Africa, it provides a fascinating lens through which to study the complex geographical issues of continuity and change. Continuity and Change in the Tunisian Sahel explores just such issues using a number of sub-themes: Islam, the relationships the region has with the global economy, rural development, security, and urban form and function.
