Abstract

Arab and Berber population. The flow of migration was anything but smooth, but once the decision was made that France was in Algeria to stay, the trajectory, especially tragic for the Algerian population, was clear. By 1848 the fate of Algeria, a colony made up of increasing numbers of European settlers craving land, was sealed. The following decades saw continuing conquest by "the sword" along with the growth of an immigrant settler population.

French military setbacks, such as the failed attempt to take Constantine in 1836, were rare and quickly reversed. What were the specific instruments of expansion symbolized by "the sword" and
