- Palgrave Macmillan 2002; US$ 145.00
The Algerian War 1954-62 was one of the most prolonged and violent examples of decolonization.

Bringing to an end one hundred and thirty two years of French rule, the Algerian struggle caused the fall of six French prime ministers,... more...

- World Wisdom 2013; US$ 9.99
This extraordinary biography of the Algerian warrior and Sufi saint, Emir Abd el-Kader (1807/8-1883), shows his dazzling spiritual qualities in the fight against the French colonial authorities.
