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.
