Expanding Boundaries 49 the decolonialized maquis, the product of higher education, or the ambitious career-driven jeune cadre – makes him an anti-new-man. His unapologetic disdain of progress and reluctance to modernize make him a throwback to an older culture, and an icon of a culture on the verge of disappearance.
