Review

"Uncivil War is indispensable reading for re-assessing the greater historical significance of the Algerian War."

"Mouloud Feraoun's "Journal" is a precious account not only of the social, political, and military conditions in revolutionary Algeria, but also of a man whose dedication and dignity transcended the atrocity and absurdity of his times. This unsettling yet inspiring book is highly recommended for general as well as specialized collections."

" An illuminating study of French intellectual responses to the war." -- "New York Review of Books"


" Uncivil War is indispensable reading for re-assessing the greater historical significance of the Algerian War." -- "Islam and Christian-Muslim Relations"

" Le Sueur has provided an insightful and lively interpretation of an ongoing moral, sociological, political, and intellectual struggle taking place on both sides of the Mediterranean Sea." -- "American Historical Review"


" Le Sueur' s great achievement is to reveal the complexity of the political and moral choices faced by intellectuals and, by extension, by the wider populations of Algeria and France." -- "Journal of Imperial and Commonwealth History"


"This first English translation of Feraoun' s deeply personal and poignant record of the Algerian war of independence is long overdue. The reader will be struck by the historical and anthropological precision that characterizes Mouloud Feraoun' s record of the war."

"The Journal has long been known to students of the Algerian War: its appearance in English will make it available to a broader audience, and will be especially welcome to students of postcolonial theory whose themes it admirably exemplifies." -- Irwin Wall "Research in African Literatures"

This unsettling yet inspiring book is highly recommended for general as well as specialized collections." Phillip Naylor, The Journal of Military History--Phillip Naylor "The Journal of Military History ""

"Feraoun is best known for a chronicle of events, titled simply Journal, that he kept during the eight-year war that led to Algerian independence in 1962. . . . His Journal makes clear Feraoun's lucidity regarding the national question-an issue that has bedeviled our times and of which Algerian history has been in many ways prototypical."--Roger Kaplan, The New Republic--Roger Kaplan "The New Republic "

"Feraoun was great novelist and an educator in the colonial system until his assassination by the OAS, a right-wing French terrorist group, just three days before a cease-fire ended Algeria's eight-year battle for independence from France in 1962. His first entry, from November 1, 1955, prefigures the complexity, irony, and compassion that dictate the intellectual rigor and honesty of his life's work . . . In passage after passage, Feraoun's Journal reads like a message in a bottle. Far beyond the particulars of Algeria, it is precisely this gesture that makes Feraoun's Journal such a timely and timeless historical, political, literary, and human document."--Ammiel Alcalay, The Village Voice--Ammiel Alcalay "The Village Voice "

This translation of the original French version published in 1962 is thus long overdue. Perhaps its greatest value it as an unmatched description of the infinite dilemmas faced by Algeria's 'Europeanized Muslims'. The journal provides a constant reminder of the inevitable accommodations made by Muslims caught between two bloody extremes. In its focus on the personal consequences of killings and counter-killings within the Algerian Muslim community, it gives real voice to those whom Fanon characterized as Damnes de la terre."--Martin Thomas, The Journal of Imperial and Commonwealth History--Martin Thomas "The Journal of Imperial and Commonwealth History "
