"A people without a voice". The first part focuses on the rise of Islamic fundamentalism trough legitimate means – with initial encouragement from some foreign governments (US, France, etc.).
It looks at the post-colonial, social and economic roots of situation which led to the riots of October 1988 when 500 people were killed by the army. And it ends with the assassination in June 1992 of President Mohamed Boudiaf who had been appointed after the cancellation of the December 1991 elections.
