Joshua Cole. Lethal Provocation: The Constantine Murders and the Politics of French Algeria: [Review]

Research output: Contribution to journalBook/Arts/Article review

Abstract

Joshua Cole’s fascinating and extremely well-researched and well-written Lethal Provocation: The Constantine Murders and the Politics of French Algeria is like a strong wind in the sails of the microhistorical method. It examines in depth the well-known Constantine riots of August 1934 and manages to present them in a much different light. It also employs this historical event as a prism through which it addresses much greater questions related to colonial relations in French Algeria and the history of the Third Republic.
