This is a new reprint (2011) of a major source for the understanding of French colonial policy in North Africa. Paroles d’Acrion by Marshal Hubert Lyautey retraces the colonial career of the man who restored the Moroccan Makhzan according to some,  and to a large extent succeeded in implementing his dream of turning Morocco into a “French California”. Lyautey writings also retain their relevance in our time as they address the still living  issue of modernity and tradition.
Hubert G. Lyautey, Paroles d’action: Madagascar, Sud-Oranais, Oran, Maroc (1900-1926), First published in 1927, with a first reprint in 1944.
