Orphans of Islam: Family, Abandonment, and Secret Adoption in Morocco (Hardback)

£90.00
Usually despatched within 2 weeks.

Synopsis

Orphans of Islam portrays the abject lives and "excluded body" of abandoned and bastard children in contemporary Morocco, while critiquing the concept and practice of "adoption," which too often is considered a panacea. Through a close and historically grounded reading of legal, social, and cultural mechanisms of one predominantly Islamic country, Jamila Bargach shows how "the surplus bastard body" is created by mainstream society.
