Review of Ch. 18, "Social and Economic Change in North Africa Madinas: the case of Tunis" 31 Oct. 2013
By Amazon Customer - Published on
Format: Hardcover
First of all, this review is of the first section of one chapter in this edited volume, only. that is the chapter that most similar to my research and publications on the history of electricity and automobiles in the old madina of Fez, Morocco during the first half of the twentieth century, or, in other words, the French colonial period.

In this section, the author refers to the Moroccan experience.

In general, I liked his essay, though I would urge the essay writer to consider additional and more recent histories when considering modernization in French colonial Moroccan madinas, which were substantially changed, I argue, during the French colonial period. I also challenge the assumption that just because laws were put into place, they were effectively enforced. My arguments are based upon primary documents, particularly correspondences traded between French colonial era administrators.

These arguments are in my dissertation _Negotiating the City: Conserving Fez, Morocco during the French Protectorate_(University of California, Los Angeles, 2005).

The author could also see my 2011 _Getty Research Journal_ and 2012 History and Technology articles:

"Modern Mosque Lamps: Electricity in the Historic Monuments and Tourist Attractions of French Colonial Fez, Morocco (1925-1950)," History and Technology 2 (2012):177-207.

"Reading a Family Photo Album : Tchèque(s)[?] voyagent au Maroc pour rendre visite à un légionnaire [de or en] Garnison," Getty Research Journal 3 (2011):189-200 .

Thank you, Colette Apelian
