This book analyses the work of writers, journalists, and academic critics producing work during and since the end of the Algerian Civil War, arguing that literature--and ideas we have about it--can restrain our understanding of the world at a time of conflict and further entrench the polarized discourses that lead to the conflict in the first place.

Joseph Ford is lecturer in French studies at the Institute of Modern Languages Research, School of Advanced Study, University of London.
