Food and Politics in the Arab-Islamic World

(p.x) (p.1) Introduction
The Politics of Food in Modern Morocco

Stacy E. Holden

University Press of Florida

This book is organized into three distinct chronological periods that trace the construction of the modern state via urban food provisioning. Part I, subtitled “The More Things Change . . . ” discusses Morocco in the context of the Arab–Islamic world, focusing on how royal policies affected urban food supply between 1878 and 1912. Part II, subtitled “. . . the More They Stay the Same”, sets out colonial intentions to preserve stability by maintaining precolonial provisioning policies between 1912 and 1929, the first seventeen years of French rule. The third part “Continuity within Change” evaluates the effects of the global depression and local drought that plagued Morocco between 1930 and 1937. Ultimately, it traces the fashion by which the nationalist movement carried over the tenets of personalized rule developed by precolonial Alaouite rulers.

Keywords:   Middle East, food provisioning, food supply, Morocco, global depression, Alaouite rulers
