Product Details


“Provocative, profoundly committed and impeccably documented. [The Battlefield] enlightens the obscurity of Algerian politics and questions the conventional wisdom of intellectuals. It is not only a collection of articles but a book all of its own, worth serious reflection for years to come.”
—Jean Leca, Professor at the Institut d’Etudes Politiques

“No other European scholar has followed the twists and turns of Algerian politics with such tenacity, sympathy and understanding.”
—Roger Owen, A. J. Meyer Professor of Middle East History at Harvard

“I found The Battlefield deeply knowledgeable, clearly written and always thought provoking. Of many writers on Algerian contemporary affairs I particularly value Hugh Roberts’ unremitting effort to site Algerian problems in an Algerian context, thus avoiding the stereotypes and incorrect analogies that so clutter much writing on this subject … an excellent and deeply rewarding book for anyone who wants to try to penetrate the often obscure politics of this troubled and important country.”
—Ronald E. Neumann, US Ambassador to Bahrain, Ambassador to Algeria 1994–1997
