Assia Djebar, the most distinguished woman writer to emerge from the Arab world - and a top candidate for the Nobel Prize in Literature - wrote "Children of the New World" following her own involvement in the Algerian resistance to colonial French rule. Djebar's novel sheds light on current world conflicts as it reveals a determined Arab insurgency against foreign occupation, from the inside out. However, Djebar focuses on the experiences of women drawn into the politics of resistance. Her novel recounts the interlocking lives of women in a rural Algerian town who find themselves joined in solidarity and empower each other to engage in the fight for independence. Narrating the resistance movement from a variety of perspectives - from those of traditional wives to liberated students to political organisers - Djebar powerfully depicts the circumstances that drive oppressed communities to violence and at the same time movingly reveals the tragic costs of war.
