about this item

Morocco went through immense upheaval in the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. Following the experiences of a Jewish family from Fez, Jessica Marglin explores how the law helped to connect and ultimately divide Jews and Muslims during this critical period. Marglin charts how Jews successfully navigated the various Jewish, Islamic, and European legal institutions constituting Morocco’s pluralist system of law for decades—until colonial reforms abruptly curtailed their mobility. Rather than focusing on the archives of a single type of court, Marglin culls from various institutions used by Jews at the time and draws on previously untapped documents in Hebrew, Arabic, and European languages. This timely and groundbreaking study expands our understanding of contemporary relations between Jews and Muslims and changes the way we think about Jewish history, the Middle East, and the nature of legal pluralism in the modern world.
