9780253354808: Berbers and Others: Beyond Tribe and Nation in the Maghrib (Public Cultures of the Middle East and North Africa)

Berbers and Others offers fresh perspectives on new forms of social and political activism in today's Maghrib. In recent years, the Amazigh (Berber) movement has become a focus of widespread political, social, and cultural attention in North Africa, Europe, and the United States. Berber groups have peacefully yet persistently laid claim to ownership over broad areas of creativity in the arts, politics, literature, education, and national memory. The contributors to this volume present some of the best new thinking in the emerging field of Berber studies, offering insight into historical antecedents, language usage, land rights, household economies, artistic production, and human rights. The scope, depth, and multidisciplinary approach will engage specialists on the Maghrib as well as students of ethnicity, social and political change, and cultural innovation.

Review:

"Provide[s] a richly detailed description and a nuanced analysis of the changing dynamics and politics of being a Berber in post-independence North Africa." —Aomar Boum, University of Arizona

(Aomar Boum, University of Arizona)

"Berbers and Others... brings together some of the very best of the new generation of scholars working on Berber issues from a variety of perspectives... both North Africanists and all those interested in the nexus between ethnicity, culture, politics, and history, will derive much benefit and pleasure from this elegant and informed volume." —H-Africa, June 2011

(H-Africa 2011-01-00)

"Hoffman and Miller have done a real service to the anthropology of North Africa by bringing these articles together. Any work done on Berbers in the future will stand on the shoulders of this excellent collection." —Anthropos

(Anthropos)
