This chapter discusses the transformation of colonial administration in Algeria in the 1840s. The customary divide between civil and military jurisdictions in Algeria was complicated by new ideological alignments between the detractors and proponents of colonial association. At one end stood the champions of outright civil and democratic rights in the colony; at the other extreme were military leaders such as Field Marshal Thomas-Robert Bugeaud, who strongly countermanded any concession to republican rights or to civilian input in the administration of Algeria's natives. While the Saint-Simonian “family” of decision makers seemed to hold the upper hand in Algeria by 1845, their inherent disagreements were nonetheless pronounced, and related primarily to the degree and duration of military involvement in the development of the colony.
