Rioting in Algiers in 1988 brought to international attention the widespread dissatisfaction with FLN rule. Despite enormous oil revenues, Algeria's economic performance since independence has been dismal, and this, combined with the FLN's imposition of a one-party socialist state, masked deep cleavages that have since become apparent in Algerian society - between Berber and non-Berber, between the more-secular minded and devout Muslims, and between factions of the often corrupt FLN elite.
