Academica Press, LLC, a scholarly press devoted to research in the social sciences, education, literature and critical studies, today announced the publication of a new scholarly book that helps to explain recent rioting in France.
“The rioting has its roots in the colonial experience. Virtually all the European Union countries are facing similar problems with disgruntled immigrant populations, most of whom remain marginalized by generations of neglect and discrimination,” states Professor Averell Manes of Western Connecticut State University.
In her recently published monograph, Manes describes the history and repercussions of the decolonization of French Algeria, from 1960 to 2000. The "Pieds-noirs": 1960 – 2000, A Case Study in the Persistence of Subcultural Distinctiveness. (Academica Press, 2005)
