Editorial Reviews

"Dirk Vandewalle s latest book is certainly the most comprehensive edited work on Libya. Its high quality rests not only on Vandewalle s long-standing scholarship on Libya, but also on the select group of academics and practitioners who contributed insightful analyses of many aspects of Libyan politics and economics.This book is destined to become one of the best reference works on contemporary Libya." - Azzedine Layachi, Associate Professor of Political Science, St. John's University"A renowned scholar of modern Libya has assembled a collection of essays by many of the best of his fellow Libya-watchers. Together, they have produced the definitive account of the country's politics, economics, and foreign policy at the dawn of the twenty-first century.Drawing on new research and fresh analysis, this volume is essential reading for scholars, policy-makers, and business people. Anyone who wants to understand the dynamics that led to the Libyan-American rapprochement and anticipate the future of Libya will benefit from this edited collection." - Lisa Anderson, James T. Shotwell Professor of International Relations, Columbia University
