Description


[A] fascinating and important study. . . . Well researched, well organized, and well written.

Small Press Book Review

Friedman shows that the Jews were never `French,' that even as they migrated to France their customs, rituals, and daily life were still rooted in the Arab world. Stanly Aronowitz

Literate and scholarly, this intriguing ethnology studies the effects of French colonization on the identity of Algerian Jews and how that identity was forged again in their subsequent flight to France following Algerian independence. Dr. Friedman is a staff analyst for the California State Legislature.
