Book Description

7 Nov 1997 Comparative Studies on Muslim Societies
Julia Clancy-Smith's unprecedented study brings us a remarkable view of North African history from the perspective of the North Africans themselves. Focusing on the religious beliefs and political actions of Muslim elites and their followers in Algeria and Tunisia, she provides a richly detailed analysis of resistance and accommodation to colonial rule. Clancy-Smith demonstrates the continuities between the eras of Turkish and French rule as well as the importance of regional ties among elite families in defining Saharan political cultures. She rejects the position that Algerians and Tunisians were invariably victims of western colonial aggression, arguing instead that Muslim notables understood the outside world and were quite capable of manipulating the massive changes occurring around them.

4.0 out of 5 stars An excellent history of Algeria and Tunisia 20 Feb 1998
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
Clancy-Smith brings to life North African history in this brilliantly written piece that is not over-burdened with statistics but instead conveys the intricacies of the Arab culture and leaves no surprise in the reader's mind as to why the Algerians did not want to be ruled by the French, men of a completly different culture.
My only regret in giving this book is a 10 is that I wish it would have dealt more with the colonial experience in Algiers, Oran and Constantine and with the life of the pied noirs. However, doing this most likely was not the intent of the author, therefore I cannot downgrade the book too much

3.0 out of 5 stars Great Text 10 Mar 2014
By Nicholas O. Mealey - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Dr. Clancy-Smith's work is illuminating it provides insight into a perspective that is rarely dealt with. And She is able to engage a coherent narrative about resistance as the local Arab and Berber populations come face to face with colonialism.
