After liberating itself from French colonial rule in one of the 20th century's most brutal wars of independence, Algeria became a standard-bearer for the non-aligned movement. But by the 1990s, its revolutionary political model had collapsed into savage conflict between the military and Islamist guerillas. This lucid account explores Algeria's recent history, showing how the post-independence generation became increasingly alienated and turned to the rising Islamist movement.
