Top 10 English Sites on the Maghreb
One of the most common comments I hear as a student of Middle East studies is "WHERE'S THE ENGLISH LITERATURE ON THE MAGHREB!?" There is certainly a gap in anglophone literature and knowledge production in/on the Maghreb, but that gap is slowly closing. The following is a list of top 10 sites, mostly written in English, on the Maghreb. This is not an exhaustive list and there are certainly other great sources for information on the Maghreb. Though the ones listed below were selected on the basis of their frequency in publishing material, that indigenous voices native to the Maghreb and/or voices based in the Maghreb are involved in the publishing process, and that there is an effort to inform outside audiences by posting in English.
