Political Islam in Morocco : Defying the Monarchy
Éditions La Découverte
An associate professor at the University of Chicago’s Divinity School, Malika Zeghal takes a historical view of the co-evolution of religion and power in Morocco that led to today’s radicalized opposition to the ruling class. Zeghal brings to bear her experience as a political scientist and her knowledge of religion and monarchy in the Middle East in this in-depth look at the religious and political factions defying Morocco’s current young monarch, Mohamed VI.
