Summary
"Colonialism denied Algeria its own history; nationalism reinvented it, James McDougall's book charts the creation of that history through colonialism to independence, exploring the struggle to define Algeria's past and determine the meaning of its nationhood. Through local histories, McDougall analyses the relationship between history, Islamic culture and nationalism in Algeria. In so doing he confronts prevailing nations that nationalism emancipated Algerian history, and that Algeria's past has somehow determined its presents, violence breeding violence, tragedy repeating itself."--
