As Driss Maghraoui notes, historical analyses of French government in the North African colonies quickly reveal the contradictory nature of colonial citizenship: “The French settlers were strong supporters of the politics of assimilation , but paradoxically opposed its logical outcome, which would normally grant full citizenship to Algerians.” Algerian Muslims, in other words, were considered assimilable yet denied individual rights predicated on citizenship.

For perhaps the most famous proponent of the argument that the modernization of the French countryside during the Third Republic was tantamount to its nationalization (and hence linguistic and cultural uniformization), see Eugen Weber, Peasants into Frenchmen: The Modernization of Rural France 1870–­ 1914 (Palo Alto, Calif.: Stanford University Press, 1976).
