  • New sources: The audio-visual media has never before been consulted in studies of this writing.
  • New literature: The book also studies recent novels and films that have not yet been discussed in other works (in particular Sabri Louatah's Les Sauvages series and Rachid Djaïdani's Rengaine).
  • New methodology/approach: combines history, sociology, and literary studies to better understand the social, political, and literary stakes of the novels.
  • Breadth/depth: examines several authors in deep detail, thus covering a broad range of writing while also providing close readings of several important writers.
