Overview

This is the story of how one strikingly beautiful country, with few resources, geographically positioned in a notably troubled neighborhood, has achieved an economic miracle.

Sensible planning; timed development; and open international policy, instigated in the 1980s, have helped to create a progressive and flourishing country against the odds. To the extent that you could easily think you were in the South of France rather than in Africa, with its cosmopolitan feel.

Geyer writes that she has seen nothing as spectacular as the Tunisian development policy put into action. Accounts of the author's firsthand experiences from traveling in Tunisia not only feature descriptions about Tunisia's visible achievements but also accounts of the people, their mind set, and way of life. Tunisia is a fine example of a living success story for the tourist as well as the social scientist.
