Libya: From Colony to Revolution

by Ronald Bruce St John
£12.99   paperback  Oneworld Publications (2017)

Libya: From Colony to Revolution by Ronald Bruce St John Fully updated: the new edition of this compelling history begins in ancient times, takes us through the Qaddafi era, the Arab Spring and features a new chapter on post-Qaddafi Libya.
 
Since Qaddafi's ousting in 2011, Libya has been beset by instability and conflict. To understand the tumultuous state of the country today, one must look to its past. With great clarity and precision, renowned regional expert Ronald Bruce St John examines Libya's long struggle to establish its political and economic identity amidst the interference of external actors keen to exploit the country's strategic importance.
 
This authoritative history spans the time of the early Phoenician and Greek settlements, colonization by Mussolini's Italy, Qaddafi's four decades of rule and, in this updated edition, the internal rivalries that have dominated the country in the aftermath of the Arab Spring. Essential reading for those seeking a greater understanding of this complex North African state, Libya: From Colony to Revolution is an insightful history, rich in detail and analysis.
