Retour d'Algérie, où j'avais été professeur à Oran, j'avais écrit à l. a. hâte ce petit livre, qui analysait en historien et en citoyen engagé los angeles responsabilité des pieds-noirs dans cet engrenage tragique. Ma sévérité de jugement à l'égard d'Albert Camus et de Germaine Tillion, icônes du progressisme libéral, healthy en particulier scandale. Une réaction inattendue me vint de Jacques Derrida, dont j'avais été le condisciple en khâgne et qui était relaxationé un ami. Dans une lettre d'une cinquantaine de pages, celui-ci prenait appui sur mon livre pour se mettre à jour, pour l'unique fois de sa vie, avec son Algérie natale. Le cinquantenaire de l'indépendance était l'occasion d'en proposer une nouvelle édition. Augmentée d'une préface, de cet very important inédit et d'un file critique, celle-ci contribuera, je l'espère, à éclairer ce second douloureux qui reste parmi les plus importants de l'histoire contemporaine de los angeles France.
