"Essential reading for anyone who wants to have a deep and nuanced understanding of the dynamics driving events in Algeria today."
Zohra Drif, Algerian independence hero and author of Inside the Battle of Algiers: Memoir of a Woman Freedom Fighter
"No one else could have written this book. Farrand is an astute observer, a talented linguist, and a graceful writer with the skills and personality to win the confidence of people who are often skeptical of outsiders. We should all be grateful for his opening a window into their world."
William B. Quandt, Professor Emeritus, University of Virginia, and author of Revolution and Political Leadership: Algeria, 1954-1968
"As an Algerian born in the 1980s, I see myself and my generation in this book. The Algerian Dream distills for both Algerians and outside readers the trends and events that are shaping Algeria's future."
Ali Belghit, former president, Amnesty International Algeria
"In The Algerian Dream, Farrand has done what so few writers on North Africa have managed successfully: bring people to life on the page with all their heart, personality, courage, dignity, and quirks intact."
Taylor Luck, Middle East North Africa correspondent, The Christian Science Monitor
"Informative, illuminating and fascinating... a fresh and an extremely timely first-hand account of the Algerian society.... Farrand's book is a comprehensive introduction to all those who seek to deepen their knowledge of the country of one and a half million martyrs."
Noureddine Jebnoun, Center for Contemporary Arab Studies, Georgetown University
