Beyond the affluent centre of Paris, in the deprived banlieues, a war is going on between the French state and the former subjects of its colonial empire. Here, Andrew Hussey tells the strange and complex story of the turbulent relationship between secular France and Muslim North Africa, from Napoleon to the Arab Spring, and assesses the challenged posed by the legions of dispossessed for whom the mantra 'liberty, fraternity, equality' is no more than a bitter irony.
