Abstract:

The three essays, independently written and richly armored with tables, figures, and appendices, do not present a common front on Morocco (though at times they tend at least stylistically to appropriate the field). They are all based on intensive anthropological fieldwork in and around a single town, Sefrou, in the foothills of the Middle Atlas mountains. They are united, the authors tell us, by "the view that the systems of meaning, whether highly explicit like Islam or rather less so like hospitality, in terms of which individuals live out their lives constitute what order those lives attain" (p. 6). They are united also-and this constitutes their interest-by a conceptual anguish and a quest for an appropriate set of categories for grasping what to the Westerner appears to be a very elusive, slippery sort of social and cultural reality. -- Review from https://www.jstor.org (Sep. 9, 2016).
