This book, by providing an up-to-date, systematic analytical account on transformations in Algeria, makes a valuable contribution to the literature on this country that has not yet received much attention in the Anglo-American academy. Its distinctive feature is that it entirely focuses on Algeria, thus departing from existing studies dealing with... more...

The Algerian War 1954-62 was one of the most prolonged and violent examples of decolonization. At times horribly savage, it was an undeclared war in the sense that no formal declaration of hostilities was ever made. 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...

The French Army's war in Algeria has always aroused passions.

In this incisive and revealing book, Richard Bourne shows how a country that had every prospect of success when it achieved independence became a brutal police state less than thirty years later.

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. The New York Times called the Emir ?one of the few great men of the century,? while Abraham Lincoln and Pope Pius IX both commended the Emir for rescuing... more...
