The Journal of Imperial and Commonwealth History ... indispensable for any detailed study of the Algerian war.
The Journal of Imperial and Commonwealth History This book must rate as one of the most important works not only on Algeria but also on decolonisation that has appeared in recent years. It is fully and meticulously researched, the chapter sequence admirably structured, and the writing, despite the complexities of the argument, clear and effective.
The Journal of North African Studies The book is well-written, thought provoking, thoroughly documented (67 pages of notes, 25 of bibliography), and altogether a welcome contribution to the literature on the Algerian war. Coming at a moment of re-examination of the war in France, with the recent confirmations of the practice of torture put forward by General Aussaresses and other participants in this great human drama, it is timely as well.
The Journal of North African Studies ... a well-researched and provocatively fresh account of one of the great episodes of twentieth-century decolonisation.
The Journal of North African Studies Connelly offers a novel interpretation of the struggle between France and the Algerian nationalists, seeing it as a harbinger of the post-Cold War international system.
The International History Review [Connelly's] multiarchival research is impressive, especially his pioneering work in the recently available Algerian records. Above all, he has taken an innovative analytical approach, and engaging alternative to traditional diplomatic historiography.
