Summary
"During its long history as the French colonial city par excellence, Algiers was the site of recurrent conflicts between colonizer and colonized. Social, political, and cultural battles were crystallized in architecture and urban forms, which were powerful tools for defining cultural identities and shaping and challenging social engineering programs." "Analysis of the problematic transformation of Algiers reveals the complexities and ambivalence of the colonial condition more clearly than can be seen in other colonial cities." "Extensively illustrated with photographs, maps, and housing plans, this pathbreaking book presents a fascinating example of colonial urban planning."--BOOK JACKET
