This book explores the way in which British and American visitors experienced Algeria and about their imaginary responses to the country. It also attempts to trace the elaboration and evolution of the perception of Algeria in the West with particular focus on the impressions and representations of those Anglo-Americans who experienced Algeria at first hand and wrote about it.
