Editorial Reviews

From the Inside Flap

"A fascinating interpretation of Algeria's past and present agonies, set against the broader backdrop of the rise and fall of 'Third Worldism.' Essential to anyone following Middle East politics and the extrapolation of the old 'North-South' struggle into the 'New World Disorder.'"—Graham E. Fuller, RAND, coauthor of A Sense of Siege: The Geopolitics of Islam and the West

Format: Paperback
At a time when more and more postcolonial countries are leaning toward Islamic fundamentalism, this thoroughgoing study of the situation in Algeria puts the past and present in perspective. Recommended reading for anyone who is concerned about the future of the Third World.
