* You should begin by reading more about the history of modern Algeria: texts available in English include those (listed below) by Ageron, Aldrich, Ruedy and Stora (the latter two coming up closer to the present and including the civil war of the 1990s).

* The Corcoran Cambridge Introduction is a good place to find out more about 'Francophone' literature in general, including North Africa.

* Some other recommended items are asterisked.

* You will find many other critical works on North African literature, including much recent work on Djebar. You can use e.g. JSTOR (via library catalogue) or Project Muse to find articles on particular books.

* On La Bataille d’Alger there is good material on the ‘extras’ DVDs in the Criteron DVD set.
