Despite the much debated global crisis of authoritarianism, in
which authoritarian regimes came under attack from pro-democracy
groups and movements, the traditional systems in the Middle East
still stand. This book examines the factors behind the survival and
persistence of monarchical authoritarianism in Morocco and argues
that state rituals of power affect the opposition forces ability to
challenge the monarchy. Despite many challenges to its legitimacy
in the post-independence era (e.g. political Islam, military coups,
socio-economic imperatives of modernization, and deteriorating
economic conditions), the monarchy in Morocco has maintained a
stable political system. The survival of the monarchy in Morocco
not only features a panoply of institutional manipulation and
coercive means, but a unique framework of authority that is
anchored in the political culture of Morocco.
