Summary expansion
Orphans of Islam portrays the abject lives and excluded body of abandoned and bastard children in contemporary Morocco, while critiquing the concept and practice of adoption, which too often is considered a panacea. Through a close and historically grounded reading of legal, social, and cultural mechanisms of one predominantly Islamic country, Jamila Bargach shows how the surplus bastard body is created by mainstream society
