An interdisciplinary study of various aspects of Tunisian culture.

“Very rich and touching numerous areas of investigation, this book gathers together a mass of information and data. It has the advantage of being researched in Tunisia, and its authors have gone beyond the concrete facts to provide general enlightenment.” — Cultures et développement

“The book represents a study of Tunisian society at a depth and level of scholarly expertise seldom before attained. The individual essays cover a wide spectrum of Tunisian life, ranging from the emancipation of women, to family planning, to social mobility, and the data on these and all the other subjects are impressive. The book is an important and welcome contribution to the field of development in general and, in particular, to the literature on Tunisia covering the period up to 1971, for which it will be a very useful research tool.” — The Middle East Journal
