The last point in this first part was reserved to the government and the different positions and responsibilities one could find in the system a description of who does what. He talked of the massacres perpetrated by the French army in several places in Algeria and he gave the example of Blida. Khoxja ben Othman Khodja was an Algerian dignitary and scholar. Algiers attacked by the French marine, 29 June – Theodore Gudin.
I always thought the book was originally written in french. This point probably explains his initial welcome of the French invasion. One Night with You film. You are right, the people cherished many great values.

Book review: The Mirror
Stagnation on our side and hamadn on theirs. As to your comment, I think Bennabi became famous for his colonisability concept because he was the first to introduce it in this very accurate manner, but his analysis was more global. In the first part, Hamdan Khodja describes the different populations living in the Regency. Bennabi once gave an interesting example: It basically denies every negative point, or blames it on those who replaced Clauzel.
The same thing goes for the Arab tribes with their horse-riding skills. Then a chapter comes on the decadence of the government.
I liked the first part of the book. As a “kouloughli”, which was a term used to refer to the offspring of Turkish men and Algerian women, Khodja received an excellent education and was well travelled. The first step hamdaan be to change what is interior to us, the colonisability.
Another important point mentioned in the book is the taxes. On the other hand, the people who live in the cities such as Algiers are more sophisticated, richer and more knowledgeable. Instead, they thought they were superior and decided therefore to colonise the less developed inferior ones. As much as we should work on our colonisability, the Europeans should work on their colonisity.
