James Le Sueur on Algeria as an Example of Major Global Shifts in the Middle-East

Nov 6, 2014

Algeria has been on the front lines of the major global shifts playing out in the Arab world, in Africa and beyond. 

Algeria merits our focus and attention because it seems that what we are seeing in a number of places around the world today, most notably in Egypt, played out in Algeria two decades ago. Most of us are not very familiar with the history of Algeria, so the discussion includes a general overview from the French occupation of Algeria through to Algerian independence in 1962.
