    One thought on “Algeria, 1830-2000: A Short History”

    1. I wish there was something I could say to commend this work, but, frankly, it's terrible. Firstly, the title is extremely misleading: the first 22 pages are actually dedicated to the pre-Franco-Algerian war period. That's it. So don't expect that you will actually read anything about Algeria prior to the outbreak of war against France in the 1950s. Secondly, the title is extremely misleading because definitely up until 1962 and for much of the book thereafter, the focus is overwhelmingly on Fran [...]

    2. This book is an English translation of three books by French historian Benjamin Stora about the history of Algeria from its colonization by the French up to 2000. The period of 1830 to the beginning of the Algerian revolution against the French in 1954 is covered in a single chapter, then there are several chapters each on the period of the war (1954-1962) and the country up to the beginning of the 21st Century. There is precious little to read over here in France about this period of time which [...]

    3. The first hundred pages or so are a francophone drag. Takes some real endurance to muster through the litany of names he drops, it's sort of like listening to "The Game" rap if you've no idea who any hip hop artists are. The Algerians don't really get much agency or analysis until 1962, and even then The early schisms within the FLN are not entirely clear (very little ideological analysis at all). The most fascinating section is certainly the analysis concerning the rise of the ISF and Islamism [...]
