Luis Martinez reviews the situation in countries like Algeria, Morocco, Libya and Tunisia. He shows that by bracing themselves with the twin functions inherited from colonial powers – maintaining law and order and extracting natural resources – these states have neglected to put the general interest of their countries at the heart of their action.
