Editorial Reviews


It is the most important recent contribution to English-language scholarship on the Algerian Revolution. -- Todd Shepard, Journal of Colonialism and Colonial History

New York Review of Books :

"An illuminating study of French intellectual responses to the war."-Adam Shatz, New York Review of Books

Journal of Imperial and Commonwealth History :

"Le Sueur's great achievement is to reveal the complexity of the political and moral choices faced by intellectuals and, by extension, by the wider populations of Algeria and France."-Journal of Imperial and Commonwealth History

American Historical Review :

"Le Sueur has provided an insightful and lively interpretation of an ongoing moral, sociological, political, and intellectual struggle taking place on both sides of the Mediterranean Sea."-American Historical Review

Islam and Christian-Muslim Relations :
"Uncivil War is indispensable reading for re-assessing the greater historical significance of the Algerian War."-Islam and Christian-Muslim Relations

"This book is beautifully researched. Le Sueur has not just based his work on the huge amount of published material; he also found rich archival sources that I don't think anyone imagined would be available. Some telling personal interviews with the major actors gives the book an added sense of their anguish during the war… The chapter on Camus alone is worth the price of the book."---William B. Cohen, Indiana University
