The Algerian Struggle for Economic, Social, and Political Change, 1965-1990

Series:

Mohamed H. Abucar

The Post-Colonial Society: The Algerian Struggle for Economic, Social, and Political Change explains how Algeria's current political problems are a product of the Algerian struggle for development and traces these problems from the outset of Algerian independence. A struggle for power continues between underprivileged groups and the petite bourgeoisie who have ruled Algeria since independence. The driving forces behind this struggle are the search for equality, justice and individual freedom. The use of religion as a means to achieve power is also explored.
