But they underline the political and economic difficulties of the French North African protectorate. Nationalist violence all but ceased after Pierre Mendes- France, while France's premier, made his dramatic flight here in July 1954 to offer Tunisians large measure of autonomy. Habib Bourguiba, popular leader of the nationalist Neo-Destour party, returned from, exile to a tumultuous welcomeM Moderate natia named premier, and the two men began negotiating with the French and working at home to improve Tunisia's lot.

Salah Ben Youssef, refused to go along with anything less than full Independence. Ben Youssef began denouncing the agreements with France. Bourpiiba, who said only recently "embassies in Pakistan or Indonesia" would be only a facade for his poor country, voiced satisfaction with the agreements as a major step toward independence.
