KIRKUS REVIEW

The author of Mexico Speaks in a second sympathetic portrait of a country and a people ""in their own words"" and in the interests of better understanding between North Africa and America. Here is the ""energy, color, mystery, vigor, aspiration"" he saw there -- in the streets, the homes, through mountains and valleys, to the cities -- Algiers and its Kasbah, Oran, Fez, Marrakech and Tunis. Here is their ageless wisdom -- the fatalism that colors their outlook -- their culture, as with Gadi, his guide, he talked to many, saw the circumstances of their daily lives. Quietly informative, there is both modesty and sensitivity to the account.
