Bibliography on North Africa in Oxford Bibliographies’ Jewish Studies

Rachel Simon’s bibliography on North Africa has been published by Oxford Bibliographies in Jewish Studies:

Stillman 1979 provides a concise survey that deals with the whole region (7th to early 19th centuries) and provides important sources. Goitein 1967–1993 is based on the Cairo Geniza documents and provides important information based on the contacts of Cairean Jews with North African Jews.
