DE LA CONQUÊTE
The conquest that led to the destruction of part of the Algerian population, its culture and its civilisation. From 1830 to 1848, what some famous, and less famous figures of 19th-century France said and wrote is contrasted with recent images of these two countries, these two worlds. (F.P.)
