French Hospitality

Read online French Hospitality streaming French Hospitality The award winning novelist and author of the international bestseller i Racism Explained to My Daughter i uses his own experience to illuminate the experience of the Other in his adopted land and everywhere A Moroccan who emigrated to France in Tahar Ben Jelloun draws upon his own encounters with racism along with his insights as a practicing psychologist and gifted novelist to elucidate the racial divisions that plague contemporary society In a modern France where openly racist leaders such as National Front spokesman Jean Marie Le Pen have made significant strides toward broad popular acceptance Ben Jelloun s book is more topical now than ever His profound and compelling appeal for tolerance in both public discourse and the law is a passionate yet reasoned argument that racism simply does not make sense in the multicultural world of today .

i French Hospitality i confronts issues of international resonance the relationship of a formerly colonized people to their onetime colonizers the encounter between Islam and the modern Judeo Christian West and the status of the non European minorities in Europe today Underlying these issues is a heartfelt nostalgia for simple traditional North African hospitality as practiced since time immemorial by a relatively poor and unsophisticated society Ben Jelloun supplements this rather noble ideal of generosity and welcoming by borrowing the philosophical concept of hospitality the opening of oneself to another from the works of Emmanuel Levinas and Jacques Derrida in order to illustrate the moral conception of a nation s unconditional acceptance of foreigners Isn t the belief in welcoming strangers a fundamental mark of civilization In a political climate where increasingly repressive immigration laws are a national trend as well as an international phenomenon he contends it is not surprising that racism has gained a foothold Most hurt by racist polemic and politics he points out are children of immigrants born in France their memories are those of the French people and they deserve to be treated with the full respect afforded to any citizen .

With his elegant and imaginative prose Ben Jelloun shows us both racism s face and the immigrant s heartbreak but he also evokes the wind of freedom and the ideal of hospitality and with this gesture offers a kind of hope in extricating ourselves from racism s recidivist incoherencies
