From the Publisher"[I]ncorporat[es] a wealth of information in a relatively short book in very accessible language… with this book in hand, those students new to Moroccan affairs or, indeed, the study of North Africa and the Middle East, will need to look no further for a broad introduction to the subject of Moroccan culture and customs - any issue a student could possibly wish to read about is touched upon by Njoku."
The Maghreb Review
"Culture and Customs of Morocco allows for a thorough understanding of Moroccan culture; from its history and religious influences through its social, political and cultural strengths. Chapters also provide critical overviews of changes and improvements in progress, as well as surveying the country's people, land, and economy. A powerful coverage which will appeal into high school and public library collections."
Midwest Book Review/Internet Bookwatch
"Njoku recounts the modern culture, society, and lifestyle of Morocco, which combines Berber, African, European, Arab, and Jewish customs. The introduction covers the history of the country, its land, people, and languages. The majority of the discussion centers on religions, including Islam, Judaism, and Christianity, politics, literature in indigenous and Western languages, media, traditional and contemporary art and architecture, cuisine and dishes, types of dress, ceremonies, gender roles, marriage, family, social customs, festivals, music, and dance."
