Chapter Summary

Amongst the topics concerning Algiers in the Ottoman period over which historians and researchers still debate, often taking up widely differing positions, undoubtedly one of the most interesting concerns its population. The purpose here is to state precisely the terms of the debate, to review in detail the present state of research and, as far as possible, to add some further, little known, elements. A phenomenon which had certainly begun before the arrival of the Turks, but was accentuated at the time of 'Aruj and Khayr al-din's capture of the city, or in any case in the first two decades of the sixteenth century. Finally, any discussion of the demographic evolution of Algiers under Ottoman rule, whether today or in the future, can be based solely on documents and written sources.
