    schema:reviewBody ""Mauritania is bordered by Senegal and Mali in the south and east respectively, Algeria in the far northeast, and the disputed territory of Western Sahara to the north. This young nation is comprised mostly of vast stretches of desert and has escaped the ravages of violent interstate and civil conflicts that bedevil Africa. Mauritanian society also possesses ancient antecedents and a universal religious faith that has been practiced over several centuries. These characteristics give the country a sometimes fragile but relatively resilient sense of national identity, which has survived since independence in 1960 in the face of powerful political, regional, ethnic/racial, and tribal rivalries. In an economy largely centered on the export of raw materials, a weak agricultural sector, and a harsh climate have further added to the challenges confronted by Mauritanians." "This third edition of Historical Dictionary of Mauritania - through its chronology, introductory essay, maps, bibliography, and hundreds of cross-referenced dictionary entries on important people, places, events, institutions, as well as significant political, economic, social, and cultural aspects - is an important reference on Mauritania."--BOOK JACKET." ;
