Algerians Without Borders: The Making of a Global Frontier Society

Algerians Without Borders: The Making of a Global Frontier Society

Tala Khanmalek, a Doctoral Candidate in the Ethnic Studies Department at University of California, Berkeley, reviews Algerians Without Borders: The Making of a Global Frontier Society. The book argues that Algerians, because of their experiences living in a “frontier territory,” are especially adept at code-switching, and have been intermediaries between the Western and Islamic world. The author focuses on the legal and institutional practices that influenced frontier interaction as well as the experiences of the border-crossers themselves.
