Where the book does fall short however, is in the first chapter where he gives far too much attention to Bernard Lewis and the fact that Lewis does not consider Morocco to be an important country for "Us" To study as its not in the direct political sphere of the Middle East. Now first of all who actually cares what Lewis thinks? Secondly the books of Lewis are hardly even read over on this side of the pond and are probably only read by neocons who think the world can be placed into neat little boxes on the other side of the pond. Thirdly Lewis's books are filled with sloppy historical research and simply read like a man who sells to the public whatever is popular with the media these days.
