This work deals with the economic and developmental challenges facing contemporary Algerian society. The social structures, the political institutions, the movements and ideologies, as well as cultural dilemmas, are considered in depth to give the fullest picture of the twenty-first century development. The volume considers the major changes, which are either underway or desperately needed, if Algeria is to move towards economic and social progress and away from the permanent seething conflict with which it is afflicted. The contributor's framework for understanding modern Algeria moves on to map out possible pathways for future development rather than relying on the repetition of old formulae and rehashing of polemical debates. The contributors represent a range of expertise in economics, business management, sociology, linguistics, political science and cultural studies. Their diverse backgrounds and perspectives permit this publication to explore new avenues of debate, which represent a significant contribution to the understanding of the present problems and potential solutions.
