So titanic the criminal is the double-threaded tale of a latest, trained Algerian girl current in a man's society, and, now not unusually, residing a lifetime of contradictions. Djebar, too, tackles cross-cultural matters simply by writing in French of an Arab society (the real act of writing contrasting with the powerful oral traditions of the indigenous culture), as a girl who has visible revolution in a now post-colonial state, and as an Algerian residing in exile.
In this new novel, Djebar brilliantly performs those contradictions opposed to the bloody historical past of Carthage, a very good civilization the Berbers have been as soon as in comparison to, and makes it either a tribute to the lack of Berber tradition and a meeting-point of tradition and language. because the tale of 1 woman's adventure in Algeria, it's a deepest story, yet one embedded in an unlimited history.

It is inconceivable that those ofﬁcial negotiators, Cisneros in particular, who did in this way successfully push Portugal to expel its Muslims, were not looking toward the eventual imposition of a similar policy at home in Spain, and, indeed, it is difﬁcult to imagine that the Portuguese would have acceded to the Castilian demands unless it had been at least tacitly understood that Castile itself would be moving at some time in the future toward the same degree of religious uniformity. I therefore regard the conditions imposed on Portugal in 1497 as the ﬁrst indication that Castile8 envisaged putting an end within its own territories to the medieval Mudejar dispensation according to which Christian rulers accepted Muslims as their subjects.
This ﬁnal period of Islamic Granada and of Mudejar Castile is discussed in the closing chapter of Islamic Spain, 1250–1500 (Harvey 1990, 324–39).

The city could be governed as between settlers and companions in a kind of rough and ready (arbitraria) justice, because they were all of a like mind, and their resolve was directed together towards the common good.
