THE ORIGINS OF THE MOROCCO QUESTION 1880-1900

by F.V. PARSONS

 

REVIEWS:

The most scholarly and thorough work of diplomatic history I have ever read.

A.J.P.Taylor, The Times Literary Supplement

Splendid piece of historical scholarship...remarkable insights, not only into great power relations, but also into nineteenth century Moroccan society.

Trevor Taylor, The Middle East

...diplomatic history on a grand scale... a distinct pleasure to read.

The Economist

Only now, thanks to Parsons’ monumental work, can we begin to understand the real complexity and significance of the question.

Douglas Johnson, New Society

An example of historical scholarship at its grandest.

Geoffrey Best, British Book News

Beautifully written...a long, clear and satisfying account which is unlikely to be bettered.

Michael Brett, The Maghreb Review

Dr. Parsons’ exhaustive and lucidly written survey...is masterly throughout.

Andrew Boyle, History Today

Parson’s volume is an essential reference for historians who require a factual grounding for more theoretical explorations of the era... his careful tracing of the conjuncture of European interests that fostered Morocco’s centrality to Great Power politics is masterly.
