"BEYOND THE VEIL: MALE-FEMALE DYNAMICS IN MODERN MUSLIM SOCIETY"
Fatima Mernissi, (Al Saqi Books/Indiana UP).
Seminal book by a feminist Moroccan sociologist from the Mohammed V University in Rabat.
"DOING DAILY BATTLE: INTERVIEWS WITH MOROCCAN WOMEN"
Fatima Mernissi, (The Women's Press/Rutgers UP).
Eleven women - carpet weavers, rural and factory workers, teachers - talk about all aspects of their lives, from work and housing to marriage. A fascinating insight into a resolutely private world.
"A STREET IN MARRAKESH"
Elizabeth Fernea, (Doubleday, US, o/p).
Highly readable account of a woman anthropologist's period of study and experiences in Marrakesh.
"MIDDLE EASTERN MUSLIM WOMEN SPEAK OUT"
Elizabeth Fernea and Basima Q. Bezirgan, (University of Texas Press, US).
Straightforward and accessible social anthropology, including interesting transcriptions of Berber women's songs from the High Atlas.
"ARABS AND BERBERS"
Ernest Gellner and Charles Micaud (eds), (Duckworth/Lexington Press, 1973, o/p).
Authoritative collection of anthropological articles on Berbers and tribalism in Morocco. Interesting, if read on a rather selective basis.
"SAINTS OF THE ATLAS"
Ernest Gellner, (University of Chicago Press, US).
The bulk of this book is an in-depth study of a group of zaouia-villages in the High Atlas, but there are excellent introductory chapters on Morocco's recent past and the concept and origins of Berbers.
"MOROCCAN DIALOGUES: ANTHROPOLOGY IN QUESTION"
Kevin Dwyer, (Waveland Press, US).
Fascinating series of recorded conversations with a farmer from a village near Taroudannt, ranging through attitudes to women, religion and village life to popular Moroccan perceptions of the Jews, the French and even the hippies. Well worth a look.
"TUHAMI: PORTRAIT OF A MOROCCAN"
Vincent Crapanzano, (University of Chicago Press, US).
Tuhami is an illiterate Moroccan tilemaker in Meknes: this study is an interesting, if at times slightly impenetrable, mix of ethnography and psychology.
"MOROCCAN PEASANTS: A CENTURY OF CHANGE IN EASTERN RIF"
David Seddon, (William Dawson, UK).
Covers similar ground to David Woolman (see "History"), though with a more strictly anthropological approach.
"THE JEWS OF ISLAM"
Bernard Lewis, (Routledge/Princeton UP).
Morocco had over 30,000 Jews until the mass emigrations to Israel in the 1940s and 1950s. Lewis discusses their position (which was perhaps the most oppressed within the Arab world) and their political and cultural contributions. Disappointingly, he doesn't attempt to cover the period of emigration itself.
"THE MELLAH SOCIETY: JEWISH COMUNITY LIFE IN SHERIFIAN MOROCCO"
Shlomo Deshen, (University of Chicago Press, US).
Academic study of economic activity and political organisation in the Mellahs prior to the Protectorate.
"RITUAL AND BELIEF IN MOROCCO" y "WIT AND WISDOM IN MOROCCO"
Edward Westermarck, (1926); (1930).
Ritual is a seminal work on Morocco and remains a fascinating storehouse of social and anthropological detail. Wit is entirely a collection of Moroccan proverbs. Both are well worth the effort to track down in libraries.
