about

A dramatic story . . . any number of episodes could inspire novels . . . impossible to read without thinking of more current events."- The New York Times "A valuable and timely reminder . . . of that rare figure: a bridge between East and West."- Times Literary Supplement This well-researched and compelling biography of the Muslim warrior-saint who led the Algerian resistance to French colonization in the mid-nineteenth century sheds light on current US involvement with a global Islam. The most famous "jihadist" of his time, Abd el-Kader was known equally for his military brilliance and his moral authority. His New York Times obituary called him "one of the few great men of the century." "
