Riassunto: "[Ruedy] has skillfully compressed over two thousand years of Algerian history into a smooth, fast-paced narrative while at the same time addressing all the major questions concerning Algeria's historical development...a tour de force." - Julia Clancy-Smith, University of Virginia. "Quite simply put, this work is the best and most comprehensive history of modern Algeria in English..." - "Digest of Middle East Studies". One of the largest countries in Africa and in the Arab world, Algeria in the last half of the twentieth century has stood as a compelling model of national liberation and development. Yet, as the century nears a close, Algeria is beset by a national crisis, its economy in virtual collapse, its single-party political system discredited, and its cultural identity challenged by emergent Islamic fundamentalism. John Ruedy provides the first up-to-date history of Algeria's evolution from a segmented tribal order under the Ottoman Empire through five generations of French colonial exploitation, to an eight-year war of liberation, and finally to independent statehood. A concluding chapter surveys the developing political and economic crisis of the 1980s and 1990s, which witnessed Algeria at a crossroads between the Islamists and military rule. Synthesizing a large body of research in French, Arabic, and English, Ruedy incorporates political, economic, social, and cultural elements into his deft historical narrative. Maps, tables, an extensive bibliography, and a bibliographical essay enhance the utility of this book for students, scholars, and general readers.
About the Author: John Ruedy is Emeritus Professor of History at Georgetown University. He has served most recently as the North Africa editor for the Encyclopedia of the Modern Middle East and North Africa.
