Author Albert Camus' agonized reflections on Algeria and the dead end of terrorism are gathered here in English for the first time. Translated by Arthur Goldhammer.
May 13, 2013 Albert Camus' Algerian Chronicles, finally available in translation, collects essays, columns and speeches from the writer's days as a young journalist. Camus was criticized for his moderate approach to the French-Algerian war, but reviewer Jason Farrago says Chronicles is a guide to "how to be just in a difficult world."
