The author follows the evolution of a backward tribal society into one of the most militant Arab states, a significant force within OPEC, and a troublesome puzzle for the superpowers. He gives a blow-by-blow account of Colonel Qadhafi's seizure of power and examines the changing nature of his authority within the country. This book provides the facts necessary for an understanding of contemporary Libya and its place in world events.
