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. Based on a well-established fieldwork course, and copiously illustrated with maps, diagrams, photographs, posters, quotations and tables, the book also includes practical advice on how to carry out fieldwork and field investigations in arid and semi-arid regions.
