Moroccan Dreams : Oriental Myth, Colonial Legacy, Hardback Book

Moroccan Dreams : Oriental Myth, Colonial Legacy Hardback

Description

Morocco has long been a mythic land, firmly rooted in the European colonial imagination.

For more than a century it has been appropriated by travellers, explorers, writers and artists.

It is just these images and imaginings that are now being reconstructed for nostalgic consumption. In Moroccan Dreams, Claudio Minca examines this aestheticised re-enactment of the colonial, exploring the ways in which Moroccans themselves have become complicit in the re-writing of their homes and lives. Richly illustrated, the book provides a fascinating journey that will engage and delight all those enamoured of Morocco and its extraordinary geographies.
