Called Berbers by outsiders, the Imazighen are northern Africa's original inhabitants, and they represent a sizeable share of the area's population today. Arranged alphabetically, this volume contains several hundred entries on this group's most significant people, places, events, and institutions throughout history. It also features maps, plus a chronology, introduction, and extensive bibliography. Ilahiane (himself a Berber from Morocco) teaches anthropology at Iowa State U.
