1981 Casablanca & Contemporary Morocco

 

In our One Book One Village title, The Other Americans, one family’s move to the U.S. during Casablanca’s 1981 unrest and protests changes the paths of several characters. Dr. Mahmood Ibrahim, Professor Emeritus of History at California State Polytechnic University, used the events in Casablanca to highlight aspects of Moroccan history, as a way of explaining the riots and putting them in present-day Moroccan context.
