Being There by Abdellah Hammoudi Being There, Paperback (February 2009)

Challenges to ethnographic authority and to the ethics of representation have led many contemporary anthropologists to abandon fieldwork in favor of strategies of theoretical puppeteering, textual analysis, and surrogate ethnography. This title argues that ethnographies based on these strategies elide important insights.

Season in Mecca by Abdellah Hammoudi Season in Mecca, Hardback (January 2006)

In 1999, the Moroccan scholar Abdellah Hammoudi, trained in Paris and teaching in America, decided to go on the pilgrimage to Mecca. He wanted to observe the hajj as an anthropologist but also to experience it as an ordinary pilgrim, and to write about it for both Muslims and non-Muslims.

Master and Disciple by Abdellah Hammoudi Master and Disciple, Paperback (October 1997)

In the postcolonial era, Arab societies have been ruled by a variety of authoritarian regimes. Focusing on his native Morocco and building on the work of Foucault, the author of this text explores the ideological and cultural foundations of this persistent authoritarianism.
