Morocco: In the Labyrinth of Dreams and Bazaars

by Walter M Weiss - £10.00  The Armchair Traveller at the BookHaus (2016)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9781909961258 | ISBN 10: 1909961256

Morocco has been influenced by an incredible variety of peoples. Phoenicians, Romans, Arabs, Berbers, Muslims, Jews, and most of Europe’s colonisers have played a part. Modern Moroccan society is no less rich and varied. In Berber villages in the mountains most people can’t read and consider their king to be divinely chosen, while businessmen in Casablanca’s towering offices dream of European Union membership and a tunnel to Andalusia.
 
In this book, Walter M Weiss travels the breadth and depth of these social and geographical contrasts. He visits the settings of modern legends, such as Tangier and Casablanca, as well as the two medieval centres Fès and Meknès, and sees earthen kasbahs and Marrakech’s bazaar. On the way, he meets acrobats, Sufi musicians, pilgrims, craftsmen, beatniks, rabbis and Berber farmers, among many others.
