History of Algerian immigration to France by E. Blanchard (review)

History of Algerian immigration to France by E. Blanchard (review) Book reviews Blan Chard E., 2018, Histoire de l’immigration algérienne en France [History of Algerian immigration to France], Paris, Éditions de la Découverte, 128 pages. In this short book, Emmanuel Blanchard manages to give a complete summary of the migration history linking Algeria to France, problematizing the subject despite not having the space in the given format to study all important aspects in detail. The author’s own analyses and those from the key works of Benjamin Stora and Gilbert Meynier are supplemented with insights from research done in the last decade. Blanchard takes full account of the complexity of the subject and draws on a wide-ranging bibliography that will be of use to readers in search of more extensive analyses. Immigrants from Algeria have been the target of hostile representations and practices from the moment sizeable numbers of them began arriving in metropolitan France. Yet the greatest share of immigrants on French soil since the 1980s have been Algerian-born, and France is by far the first-choice destination of Algerian emigrants. The chronological spans indicated in the chapter titles remain somewhat flexible, enabling the author to highlight instead a number of themes, though this does obscure some historical changes.
