Review: The Berbers: The Peoples of AfricaUser Review - Brooke - Goodreads
I really, really should have just STOPPED at "an egalitarian society.... except for the women." But no, I continued to "The women gather to gossip.... the men gather to chat." 3 stars for great images. Read full review
Review: The Berbers: The Peoples of AfricaUser Review - Alex - Goodreads
I am currently living in Morocco speaking a Berber dialect (Tashelheit) and living with a Berber family. This book is intentionally unMoroccan focused and is less useful than I hoped it would be. It has given me a better understanding of North African history. Read full review
