English language non-fiction books about Morocco
A bibliography based on work by Robert S Drake
alphabetical by author

For ease, the red underlined titles can be ordered directly from the online bookstore Amazon.com by clicking on the title, since this page is in association with Amazon.com.   Book reviews and referrals are often included.  Some books are listed as "out of print": Amazon can look for those too. Or those, and indeed all, can be found at a library; university libraries are especially good for older books.
