During the two World Wars that marked the 20th century, hundreds of thousands of non-European combatants fought in the ranks of various European armies. The majority of these soldiers were Muslims from North Africa, Sub-Saharan Africa, Central Asia, or the Indian Subcontinent. How are these combatants considered in existing historiography? Over the past few decades, research on war has experienced a wide-reaching renewal, with increased emphasis on the social and cultural dimensions of war, and a desire to reconstruct the experience and viewpoint of the combatants themselves. This volume reintroduces the question of religious belonging and practice into the study of Muslim combatants in European armies in the 20th century, focusing on the combatants' viewpoint alongside that of the administrations and military hierarchy.

Immigration is at the heart of social, cultural and political debate in France, a country still struggling to come to terms with its postcolonial legacy. Popular opinion and political and media discourse view postcolonial immigration in France as presenting new challenges to the French model of integration and national identity, as exemplified by the Maghrebis who are believed to be relatively recent arrivals with social, cultural and religious practices that are ‘irreconcilably’ different from those of the French. This perspective ignores the long history of complex ties between France and North Africa since the colonial era, and the fact that Maghrebis have lived in France since the early twentieth century. _x000D_ _x000D_ ‘Immigration and National Identity’ challenges these widely held beliefs by presenting the migrants’ perspective and a pathbreaking account of their political mobilisation from the colonial to the postcolonial period. Here Aissaoui shows us how these immigrants were able to forge a sense of national identity shaped by ethnicity, class, culture, religion and memory. While the Maghrebis have been generally viewed as passive and largely invisible workers they were, in fact, able to construct a powerful and consistent political tradition which has had a lasting impact on the politics of France and North Africa. The Algerian nationalist movement in France - the Etoile nord-africaine (ENA) and the Parti du peuple algérien (PPA) - emerged during the inter-war period and played an important role in the Algerian anti-colonial struggle after the Second World War. Aissaoui also discusses the emergence, in the postcolonial period, of new forms of political activism such as the Mouvement des travailleurs arabes (MTA) and the mobilisation of Maghrebi immigrants in the 1970s. Combining insights from the archive and interviews with political activists, he examines the diaspora’s voice, their struggle against racism and oppression and their often complex relationship with French political parties and other immigrant groups. _x000D_ _x000D_ ‘Immigration and National Identity’ foregrounds the migrants’ perspective and the necessary historical background to the fraught contemporary context of immigrant communities in France. Emphasizing the links between earlier forms of political discourse and organisation and the present tensions of immigrant life in a postcolonial world, this book will be valuable for all those concerned with immigration, colonialism and postcolonialism, cultural studies, sociology and the study of contemporary France. _x000D_

L'un des objectifs de ce volume est de décloisonner et d'enrichir l'histoire militaire en la faisant bénéficier des apports de soixante-dix ans de Nouvelle Histoire ainsi que des différentes sciences humaines. Une histoire militaire renouvelée devrait ainsi se situer dans la continuation de l'Ecole des Annales, mais une continuation critique, qui dépasserait l'opposition de l'histoire traditionnelle et de la Nouvelle Histoire... Une histoire dans laquelle ne seraient oubliés ni l'événement, ni le sujet, quand bien même les recherches porteraient sur structures et la longue durée. Dès lors, l'histoire militaire, en général et l'histoire des batailles en particulier recouvrent toute leur place dans un projet d'histoire globale. C'est pourquoi le thème retenu par les auteurs de ce livre est celui de l'apport des sciences humaines à l'histoire militaire. Les textes ici rassemblés sont donc l'œuvre de spécialistes du droit, de la psychologie sociale, de l'ethnologie, de la linguistique, de la sociologie, de l'économie ou des sciences politiques. Ce dialogue avec d'autres disciplines aboutit à l'élaboration de nouvelles méthodologies, de nouvelles problématiques et de nouveaux objets de recherche.

The chief economist for the World Bank's Africa region, Shanta Devarajan, delivered a devastating assessment of the capacity of African states to measure development in his 2013 article "Africa's Statistical Tragedy". Is there a "statistical tragedy" unfolding in Africa now? If so then examining the roots of the problem of provision of statistics in poor economies is certainly of great importance. This book on measuring African development in the past and in the present draws on the historical experience of colonial French West Africa, Ghana, Sudan, Mauritania and Tanzania and the more contemporary experiences of Ethiopia and the Democratic Republic of Congo. The authors each reflect on the changing ways statistics represent African economies and how they are used to govern them. This bookw as published as a special issue of the Canadian Journal of Development Studies.

The horrific tragedies of Central Africa in the 1990s riveted the attention of the world. But these crises did not occur in a historical vacuum. By peering through the mists of the past, the case studies presented in The Land Beyond the Mists illustrate the significant advances to have taken place since decolonization in our understanding of the pre-colonial histories of Rwanda, Burundi, and eastern Congo. Based on both oral and written sources, these essays are important both for their methods—viewing history from the perspective of local actors—and for their conclusions, which seriously challenge colonial myths about the area.
