2 - 4 weeks availability
In 1962, Algeria's independence appeared to the wider world to be the triumphant culmination of its own anti-colonial liberation and the epitome of the developing world's struggle for national independence. Thirty years later, these hopes and symbols seemed in ruins as a military-backed coup tore up the results of a democratic election. This book examines Algeria's political and economic situation and discusses future prospects for the country.
George Joffe is a Research Fellow at the Centre and Visiting Professor of Geography at Kings College, London University. He specialises in the Middle East and North Africa and is currently engaged in a project studying connections between migrant communities and trans/national violence in Europe.
