Why is it important?

This is the first study in its kind to investigate, in depth, the insertion and journalism and prison literature in the Moroccan context. Therefore, it is very important for studies that will engage with the question of the afterlife of the "years of lead".


I think this chapter fills a gap in our understanding of literature and journalism's impact on Moroccan collective memory.
