9781851689194: Libya: From Colony to Revolution (Short Histories)

Combining a historian’s balance with an analyst’s insight to skilfully navigate Libya's eventful past and present, Ronald Bruce St John updates his authoritative history of this turbulent North African state to include an in-depth examination of the 2011 rebellion that finally put an end to over 40 years of authoritarian rule by Qadaffi. From early Greek settlements to the infamous Lockerbie bombing, and from the colonel’s astonishing return to the international stage to the events that led to his ousting, this stands as an essential introduction to this complex land on the cusp of Africa and the Middle East. Ronald Bruce St John is a scholar of Libya, having consulted to ABC's 20/20, the New York Times, Fortune 500 companies, and the U.S. government. Now an analyst for the progressive think tank Institute for Policy Studies, he has also served on the advisory board of The Journal of Libyan Studies and the Atlantic Council's working group on Libya. A former military intelligence officer in the US army, he is the author of Libya and the United States and Qaddafi's World Design, among other books.

`An excellent political history of Libya...engaging.' * Irish Times * `Of all the books on Libya, Bruce St John's is easily the most comprehensive and approachable.' * Washington Post * `A timely and necessary book...fluid in its writing and measured in its judgements.' * New Internationalist * `Excellent... accessible, informative and presented with clarity... You won't find a much better overview of Libya than this.' * Herald * `An excellent general overview, accessible, informative and presented with clarity... Until the secret archives in Tripoli have been raked over, you won't find a much better overview of Libya than this.' * Libya Herald * `An excellent and concise history of this complex country.' -- George Joffe, Centre of International Studies, Cambridge University `Ronald Bruce St John is a committed scholar of Libya...his book offers the measured and confident tone of someone deeply familiar with the subject matter.' * Richard Phelps, Quilliam Foundation, Journal of North African Studies * `An excellent account of Libya's often contentious history: clear, concise, accurate and balanced. It will be the best general work on the country available for the foreseeable future, very useful to anyone interested in the country.' -- Lisa Anderson, James T. Shotwell Professor Emerita of International Relations, Columbia University `For the general reader as well as for those with a good level of knowledge of Libya, there is perhaps no one better situated to...explain the country's current and future dilemmas than Ronald Bruce St John...[an] admirable history.' * Diederik Vandewalle, International Affairs * `Rich in historical detail...containing rare insights into Libyan leader Qaddafi's thinking, particularly on foreign affairs. Indispensable for every serious student of Libya or North Africa.' -- Michele Dunne, Director and Senior Fellow, Middle East Program, Carnegie Endowment for International Peace `An outstanding book...the best short history of Libya. St John has made us accustomed to first-rate analyses of Libya; this book is no exception and no students of Libya, from undergraduates to experts, could afford not to have it on their shelves.' -- Yahia H. Zoubir, Professor of International Relations and International Management, and Director of Research in Geopolitics, Euromed Management, Marseille School of Management
