Gendering Political Agency in the Maghreb - Books review

13.11.2020 / Created by ICWD

If North Africa is understudied by academics of the Middle East, the Maghrib is less so and Maghribian women are even more less so. The four books under review redirect attention to this region and the potential it has for researchers and academics in general. In covering four centuries and ranging over four countries, the books link the multifacetious and gendered histories of the Maghrib to its present and depict how the local, regional and transregional intermingle and constitute a valuable reference not only for maghribian and North African studies, but also for the Middle Eastern and Mediterranean studies, and, hence constitute a milestone for regional and global comparisons.
