Studies of post-colonial government have had great difficulty in establishing either an intellectual standpoint from which to depict, or a moral one from which to judge. Waterbury's view of Morocco's political elite depicts a part of the politics of the early 20th century. The authors tells about the political elites and their various backgrounds. There is also a history of the political system as well as the creation of political parties in Morocco

North for the trade: the life & times of a Berber merchant by John Waterbury( Book )

11 editions published in 1972 in English and held by 426 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this fascinating and immensely readable book the author seeks to outline some of the social and economic changes that have taken place in Morocco between the establishment of the French Protectorate and the present day. This he attempts to do by describing the traditional background and the personal experiences of an individual Berber, a grocer from the valley of the Sous in southern Morocco who, under the pseudonym of Hadj Brahim, is allowed to do a good deal of the talking himself. In a series of vivid and often amusing reminis- cences he tells how he started work in his uncle's shop in Tangier in 1925, fought against the French invaders of his native valley in 1934, set up his own grocery business in Casa- blanca in 1935, and how he lived through and actively participated in the series of events which finally led to Moroccan independence and the accelerated social and economic changes which were to follow. The method employed by the author is highly successful, resulting in a varied and stimulating account which will be of interest not only to students of the social sciences but to all those who con- cern themselves with North African affairs. -- James Bynon in http://www.jstor.org (Sep. 16, 2016)
Peasants and politics in the modern Middle East( Book )

7 editions published in 1991 in English and held by 404 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Though war dominated news about the Middle East in 1991, political upheaval in the region existed long before CNN filmed it. This collection of essays addresses the evolving process of politics and violence in the rural populations of the Middle East in the last 150 years. While events in Egypt, Iran, and Turkey receive the most attention, the volume brings together material for the entire region, including analyses of peasant violence in Syria, Lebanon, Palestine, and North Africa. Societies of the Middle East entering the 20th century were overwhelmingly agrarian, consisting largely of peasants who produced for themselves or for local markets. As rural populations began producing for larger markets, conflict and rebellion ensued. The authors place the explosion of rural protests in historical context and examine the coping strategies of peasants undergoing rapid change. In analyzing the degree of peasant participation in politics, they warn against mistaking the outward appearance of submission for an inward acceptance of oppression. They argue that the most characteristic aspect of peasant insubordination has been its permanence and continuity and conclude that no single dynamic can explain why rural actors protest, sabotage, or acquiesce to the powerful interests that control the markets or the state
