Mecca of Revolution

Algeria, Decolonization, and the Third World Order

Jeffrey James Byrne

Oxford Studies in International History

  • Examines how an anti-colonial nationalist movement became radicalized through the Cold War and then led to independent Algeria's ambitious agenda to not only reshape its national identity but also international society.
  • Draws on unprecedented access to materials from the FLN archive and the archives of the Algerian state after independence.
