Islamism in Morocco : The Challenge to Monarchy, Paperback / softback Book

Islamism in Morocco : The Challenge to Monarchy Paperback / softback

Paperback / softback


The attacks in Casablanca in 2003 and Madrid in 2004 startled the West into an awareness of the expanding sphere of influence of North African Islamists.

Until recently, Morocco was thought of as a stable pro-Western kingdom and safe tourist destination.

Beginning in the 1990s, however, political Islam has brought about turmoil in Morocco, with the Islamist party gaining more and more seats in the elections of 1997 and 2002.

Other Islamic groups on the scene include extreme violent jihadists with nebulous goals who challenge the king's traditional function as political and religious leader.

These movements are deeply segmented and create a highly explosive atmosphere.""Islamism in Morocco"" highlights the new situation in Morocco and its effects on Europe, including the immigration of an often unwelcome, impoverished Moroccan underclass.

The book includes a discussion of the Sept. 2007 election, and recent terrorist threats. The author, Malika Zeghal, situates the events and developments in their historical context and adds the flavor of her many years of experience as a researcher in Morocco, combining historical analysis with personal perspectives in a clear and compelling presentation.
