A excellent collection of literature.
The only story I read from this collection was Mohammed Dib's "Naema--Whereabouts Unknown."

I really enjoyed the story, which takes a look at the disasters of war in Algeria.

This piece would go great as a pre-reading activity before a lesson over "Endangered" by exposing students to the nature of warfare in third world countries.

This is a great anthology for a World Literature course. Lots of variety in the stories as well as historical background of the countries. The only complaint is that it is a bit cumbersome to lug around!
