This book is “the result of various experiences of Hassan Rachik as a researcher since his fieldwork in Zemmour in 1980, a teacher since 1983 and a consultant since his stays in the Middle Atlas in 1985″. It is “composed of a hundred articles which expose as simply and as succinctly as possible the basic knowledge that a young researcher, a speaker in a rural environment or simply a curious person should have about rural Morocco”, underlines- your.
