  • Algeria and France

    From Colonialism to Cooperation

    By Dorothy Pickles

  • North Africa

    Nation, State, and Region

    Edited by George Joffé

    North Africa differs from the Middle East in several significant ways.

    There is a paradox about Africa: it remains a subject that attracts considerable attention yet rarely is there a full appreciation of its complexity. African historiography has typically consisted of writing Africa for Europe—instead of writing Africa for itself, as itself, from its own…
