In Morocco

In Morocco
In Morocco
by Edith Wharton. 1920. Morocco is too curious, too beautiful, too rich in landscape and architecture, and above all too much of a novelty, not to attract one of the main streams of spring travel as soon as Mediterranean passenger traffic is resumed. Now that the war is over, only a few months' work on roads and railways divide it from the great torrent of "tourism"; and once that deluge is let loose, no eye will ever again see Moulay Idriss and Fez and Marrakech as I saw them. Wharton was a committed supporter of French imperialism, describing herself as a "rabid imperialist", and the war solidified her political conservatism. After World War I, she travelled to Morocco as the guest of the resident general, Gen. Hubert Lyautey and wrote a book In Morocco, about her experiences. Wharton's writing on her Moroccan travels is full of praise for the French administration and for Lyautey and his wife in particular. Download now in PDF eBook format.

LIFE IN MOROCCO AND GLIMPSES BEYOND

LIFE IN MOROCCO  AND GLIMPSES BEYOND
LIFE IN MOROCCO AND GLIMPSES BEYOND
Which of us has yet forgotten that first day when we set foot in Barbary? Those first impressions, as the gorgeous East with all its countless sounds and colours, forms and odours, burst upon us; mingled pleasures and disgusts, all new, undreamed-of, or our wildest dreams enhanced! Those yelling, struggling crowds of boatmen, porters, donkey-boys; guides, thieves, and busy-bodies; clad in mingled finery and tatters; European, native, nondescript; a weird, incongruous medley--such as is always produced when East meets West--how they did astonish and amuse us! Published in 1905 - illustrated. Download now (2MB) in PDF eBook format.

Mussolini’s Roman Empire

Mussolini's Roman Empire
Mussolini's Roman Empire
Mussolini's Roman Empire by GT Garratt. An indictment of England and her responsibility in the conquest of Abyssinia (of which she knew in advance and to which she actually gave assent) and of the French progress in the Spanish Civil War (which she has aided by taking the position of non-intervention, and ignoring the active part taken by Germany and Italy and making impossible support of the existing government). Step by step, her involvement is traced, as the story of Mussolini's ambitions and achievements is unrolled. The author, who was the Manchester Guardian correspondent during the Abyssinian war and spent most of last year in Spain, thinks Mussolini more dangerous than most Englishmen believe. “In every country bordering on the Mediterranean,” he says, “people are asking: why don’t the English take Mussolini’s ambitions more seriously?” Click below to order and download the pdf ebook (27mb).
