Synopsis

More than 50 years after independence, Algerian Chronicles, with its prescient analysis of the dead end of terrorism, appears here in English for the first time. Published in France in 1958—the year the war caused the collapse of the Fourth French Republic—it is one of Albert Camus’ most political works: an exploration of his commitment to Algeria.

"Algerian Chronicles," never before translated in its entirety, is a document worth having.

...Camus stands as a powerful voice against violence and extremism, and the very late appearance of these essays in English could not have come at a better time.
