Chapter Summary

This front matter section of the book Jinn Eviction as a Discourse of Power: A Multidisciplinary Approach to Moroccan Magical Beliefs and Practices contains the table of contents, note on transliteration, acknowledgements, and a foreword. The book explores the act of exorcism in many regions of Morocco. It presents a general history of maraboutism and local histories of saint Ben Yeffu. It provides a basis for the understanding of the rites and practices associated with jinn eviction as it is performed within the maraboutic institution called zawiya. The book explains the functioning of the edifice of authority at Ben Yeffu. It also shows how the judicial proceeding takes place at the mythic court in the shrine, and how trials are held and the sentence is pronounced.

Keywords: Ben Yeffu; jinn eviction; maraboutism; Moroccan magical beliefs; Moroccan magical practices
