(p.159) Chapter Six Napoleon, Emperor of the Arabs
Apostles of Modernity
Stanford University Press

This chapter considers the events that led to unrest in Algeria, which prompted the personal intervention of Emperor Napoleon III in September 1860, whose military advisors reproached the excessive policies of the Ministry of Algeria and the Colonies, and brought to his attention the former proposals of the Arab Directorates. The Arabophile reformers introduced Napoleon III to the rudiments of the associationist project, and promised to salvage the reputation of France in Algeria with economic improvements and an accelerated drive to reconfigure Muslim rights of property. Issues such as capitalist development, technical expertise, and infrastructural modernization dominated Napoleon III's thinking on Algeria in the 1860s. The projected Arab Kingdom became the space in which to bring to fruition the organizational and cultural course that the Arab Bureaux had charted since the decrees of 1850.
