This work presents a study of the history and identity of the Moroccan Bayrouk family. The first part of the book gives an outline of the main referents in both the Bayrouk vision of 'self', and academic discourses on Maghribian history: the dynasty, caravan and 'tribe'. It identifies discrepancies in scholarly presentations of the Bayrouk and traces them back to two overlapping issues of translation and conception. For the remainder of the book a variety of sources are used to highlight the role of textuality in the creation of the Bayrouk image in academic discourse. As a result this book demonstrates how the Bayrouk family can be used as a case-study to revise the existing interpretations of Maghribian history and modes of identification.
