La Tunisie Martyre

LA TUNISIE MARTYRE

manifesto of the tunisian nationalist movement.

Written by two leading Tunisian nationalists, Abd al-Aziz Thaalbi, the founder of the Destour political party, and Ahmad Sakkah, this manifesto was published in Paris in 1921. It presented the key demands and premises of the fledgling Tunisian movement for nationalism. At its heart was the claim that, prior to the French occupation (1881), a viable Tunisian state had been in place, complete with its own constitution, representative assembly, open press, and healthy economy. On the basis of those earlier institutions, a new and independent Tunisia would be established.

Citation styles

Encyclopedia.com gives you the ability to cite reference entries and articles according to common styles from the Modern Language Association (MLA), The Chicago Manual of Style, and the American Psychological Association (APA).

Within the “Cite this article” tool, pick a style to see how all available information looks when formatted according to that style. Then, copy and paste the text into your bibliography or works cited list.

Because each style has its own formatting nuances that evolve over time and not all information is available for every reference entry or article, Encyclopedia.com cannot guarantee each citation it generates. Therefore, it’s best to use Encyclopedia.com citations as a starting point before checking the style against your school or publication’s requirements and the most-recent information available at these sites:
