Abstract: Brief abstract written by HRAF anthropologists who have done the subject indexing for the document
This work deals with the history and political evolution of
the Shluh tribes of the Grand Atlas and Anti-Atlas Mountains, the Sous River valleys and
the adjoining coastal regions. Montagne divides his work into three major parts which he
calls 'books.' The first 'book' deals with the geography, ethnography, and cultural history
of the Sous region; the second with the political organization of the Berber Republics,
with particular emphasis on the Shluh, but with additional data on the Rif, Jebala,
Senhaja, Berbers, Kabyle, and ancient and medieval Morocco; and the third is concerned with
the rise to personal power of the AMGHARS of the cantons and the 'great chiefs' or CAIDS.
All through the book and particularly in the third section are data on the political
relationship of the Shluh and other Berber groups to the Makhzen, i.e., the Moroccan
