Content Version
Description This original reading of Albert Camus' novels, short stories, and political essays concentrates on Camus' conflicted relationship with his Algerian background and finds important critical insights into issues of justice, the effects of colonial oppression, and the deadly cycle of terrorism and counterterrorism that characterized the Algerian War and continues to surface in the devastation of postcolonial wars today. David Carroll emphasizes the Algerian dimensions of Camus' literary and philosophical texts and highlights his understanding of both the injustice of colonialism and the tragic nature of Algeria's struggle for independence. By refusing to accept that the sacrifice of innocent human lives can ever be justified, even in the pursuit of noble political goals, and by rejecting simple, ideological binaries (West vs. East, Christian vs. Muslim, "us" vs. "them," good vs. evil), Camus' work offers an alternative to the stark choices that characterized his troubled times and continue to define our own.
