Algerians without Borders

This chapter explores patterns of cultural, social, and intellectual innovation that emerged in Algeria from the end of World War I through the Algerian revolution. Changes were stimulated by Algerians returning from abroad including Bashir Ibrahimi, who came back from Syria to promote a modern Islamic education system, the philosopher Malik Bennabi, who returned from France to call for dismantling the colonial mentality, and Ahmad Rida Huhu, who came back from Saudi Arabia to produce plays advocating women's rights. Urban Algeria was the scene of extensive change, but colonial authorities thwarted change in rural areas. During the revolution there was intense debate, among the French between those who sought to maintain colonial native policies, and those open to building a multi-cultural trans-Mediterranean society, and among Algerians abroad between supporters and critics of the FLN.

Keywords:   Algerian revolution, modern Islamic education, colonial mentality, women's rights, native policies, multi-cultural, trans-Mediterranean
