From the cover: “This book does not discuss the Algerian problem in terms of the political and military manoeuvrings which have recently embittered and obscured it. It goes far deeper. It considers Algeria as a single but striking example of what happens to a primitive culture when it is brought into contact with a modern industrialised economy. This book is important not only as a brief but cogent treatment of the real problems of Algeria. It has applications to many other under-developed countries, including those in the British Commonwealth. Germaine Tillion is qualified to write it by a long study of the problem and by an intimate knowledge ofAlgeria and her peoples.”
