This book explores the impact of spreading information and communication technologies (ICTs) on the state of democracy in Morocco. It provides a wider perspective on how efforts to shrink the digital divide in less developed nations may promote existing sociopolitical inequalities. Since the late 1990s the Moroccan government has launched an extensive campaign to free the media and telecommunication sectors and proceeded in recent years with two ambitious strategies, e-Morocco and digital Morocco, aiming to spread ICTs in the country. Stated official objectives behind this policy are primarily economic as the government seeks to attract foreign investments through the establishment of a business friendly digital environment. But the spread of ICTs often bring other, if officially undesired, changes to the political and social systems. By spreading ICTs for economic purposes, a government also creates a virtual public sphere for political debate that is difficult to control. This book should be useful for people seeking to understand through the case of Morocco the role that communication technologies play in the social and political change taking place in the Middle East.

A construction worker originally, his background as a leader of Beit Shean's working-class population composed of many fellow Jews of North African descent earned Levy a huge advantage in his early career as a union activist when he began to campaign for membership in the Histadrut Labour Federation's executive body, then completely dominated by loyalists of the governing Mapai.

During World War II, President Franklin D. Roosevelt and Prime Minister Winston S. Churchill formulated allied grand strategy at a series of high-level conferences held in Washington, DC, Casablanca, Quebec, Cairo, Tehran, Yalta, and Potsdam. At the Tehran, Yalta, and Potsdam conferences, the Russian leader, Joseph Stalin, also played a major role. Under policy guidance from their national leaders, the newly formed US Joint Chiefs of Staff and their British counterparts, known collectively as the Combined Chiefs of Staff, hammered out the military details of allied strategy. The minutes of the Combined Chiefs' meeting at the major conferences touch on virtually every policy and strategy issue of World War II, from initial troop deployments to counter Axis aggression, through the debates about the location and timing of the principal Anglo-American offensives, to the settlement of post-war occupation boundaries. Besides being an invaluable primary source on the early years of the Joint Chiefs of Staff and on the planning and conduct of World War II, these documents also offer insights for today on the problems of managing a global coalition war. Originally highly classified documents, the minutes were declassified on October 3, 1973. CASABLANCA CONFERENCE VOLUME 1 and VOLUME 2 (Casablanca, Morocco, 14-23 January 1943).

In the major U.S.-British debate, the British prevailed. The Allies postponed the cross-Channel invasion until 1944, but organized a combined staff to plan for it. For the immediate future, they would continue the Mediterranean campaign with an invasion of Sicily. They also decided to launch a combined strategic air offensive against Germany, and the Americans were to mount a Pacific offensive against Japan.
