Holiday planned for Morocco next year and would like to get DH (and myself!) some books for Christmas with this as a theme.

I've posted this question in fiction as well - but we're also interested in politics, history, art or culture that would give us more of a feel and understanding for Morocco. Thanks!

When we went I read A Year in Casablanca by Shah and A Year in Marrakesh by Mayne

The first one is very good and about life now, the contrasts between here and getting things done in a different culture, quite funny. Can't see on Amazon, but worth making the effort to get.

The second is more about the 1950s when the author went, but still really interesting and a good read, also recommend.
