From the Back Cover

  • "This is a very impressive book.  Joshua Cole's research, argumentation and prose are all exceptional.  His achievement should not be understated:  Lethal Provocation will stand as the definitive history of a key event in Algeria's colonial era for generations to come."  Benjamin Claude Brower, University of Texas at Austin, author of A Desert Named Peace.
  • "Lethal Provocation is a tour de force.  Here, at last, is a book worthy of the importance and complexity of the Constantine riots of 1934:  a major and long misunderstood event of modern French, Algerian, and Jewish history.  Carefully researched and brilliantly contextualized, it deserves a wide audience."Ethan B. Katz, University of California Berkeley, author of The Burdens of Brotherhood.
  • "Majestic.  Cole's powerful narrative of the tragic events of 1934 compels historians of empire to rethink categories, approaches, and methodologies.  His deep research into, and reflection on, 'French' North Africa set a new standard for colonial studies."  Julia Clancy-Smith, University of Arizona, author of Mediterraneans.
