Abstract:

This is a book about the use of languages as a proxy for conflict. It traces
the history of Algeria from colonization by the French in 1830 to the
celebration of 50 years of independence in 2012, and examines the linguistic
issues that have accompanied this turbulent period. The book begins with an
examination of 'language conflict' and related concepts, and then applies them
to both the French colonists' language policies and the Arabization campaigns
which followed independence. This is followed by an analysis of the rivalry
between the English and French languages in independent Algeria. The book
concludes with a study of the language choices made by Algerian writers and
the complex tensions which arose from these choices among intellectuals in the
colonial and post-colonial periods.
