Über das Produkt

This study is based on research in the former Bône municipal archives, generally barred to researchers since 1962. Prochaska concentrates on the formative decades of settler society and culture between 1870 and 1920. He describes in turn the economic, social, political, and cultural history of Bône through the First World War.

Synopsis

Making Algeria French relates the history of the pieds noirs and Algerians in colonial Bone, renamed Annaba in 1962. Located in eastern Algeria, this Mediterranean port city staked an early claim to world historical fame as the site of St. Augustine's Hippo. Long after the Romans, as well as the Arabs and Turks, the French tried their hand at settling Algeria. Not content with mere occupation, they constructed colonial cities along the Mediterranean littoral -Algiers, Oran, Bone - and populated them with twice as many European settlers - French, Spanish, Italians, and Maltese - as native Algerians. Using the history of Bone as a lens, David Prochaska looks at the nature of French colonialism in Algeria. His study is based on research in the former Bone municipal archives, generally barred to researchers since 1962. Prochaska concentrates on the formative decades of settler society and culture between 1870 and 1920. After an overview of Bone in 1830, and a survey of French rule from 1830 to 1870, he describes in turn the economic, social, political, and cultural history of Bone through the First World War.

He argues that, in making Bone a European city in the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, the settlers effectively blocked social evolution, attempted to contain history, and thereby precluded any genuine rapprochement with the Algerians in the twentieth century.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Bone La Coquette 3. November 2013
Von Manuel Elias Nunez Frechero - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
In his engrossing and very thorough account of settler colonialism in French Argelia’s Bone, present day Annaba, Mr. Prochaska takes us on a journey of colony building in the short span of 50 years, we witness how the French turned a sleepy Arab/Bereber port into a thoroughly French city, as Mediterranean as Nice or Marseilles, even to the last details such as the fashionable promenade, the gays cafes and the romantic plays at the theater.

In the process we see how the “native” Algerians are shifted aside to the status of non existence (as is the usual of colonized people). This measure becomes eventually the justified seed of resentment that boils for almost 100 years until it explodes into the bloody independence uprising of the 50’s and 60’s.

Explosion that ultimately leads to the demise of La Coquette, the unjust prettiness taken away in favor of the more functional egalitarian sameness that we see in many of today s “revolutionary” countries.

Maybe the final lesson, is that no matter how beautiful buildings and cities might be, they fast decay if they are not built on unseen pillars of true justice and equality to all.
