review Sandstorm 103 Ysfunctional Gaddafi family the scale of whose excesses almost surpasses belief She tells the stories of Libyans who lived in the United States or Europe but went home to risk everything to provide secret intelligence or commit daring acts of civil disobedience to bring the regime down knowing that the punishment if caught would be torture and death The fall of Gaddafi who was for forty two years the great autocrat madman on the world stage is among the past decade’s most dramatic pivot points In Lindsey Hilsum it has found its definitive chronicl. I laid my eyes on the cover of this book on my first day working in Tunis for the Libya mission of a UN agency and have been wanting to read it ever since to get a better understanding of a country I first got to know through tv reporting in 2011 This book succeeded in presenting a complex modern history of Libya weaving together multiple dimensions including tribal relations shifting loyalties with Arab African and Western countries and addafi family politics leading to the downfall of the regime Contextualized within historical backgrounds and coupled with Hilsum s observations while reporting on the onset progress and aftermath of the revolution the mayor strength of the book is that it is narrated through the eyes and memories of ordinary Libyans It therefore comprises a rich collection of different human histories of Libya but also although less prominently presenting perspectives of those loyal to the regime It is particularly these stories and fragments We re a family country that s how it works in Libya that probably taught me about Libya than any academic article could do It is an achievement worth noticing that while the richness in detail and the shifts back and forth in time ask for dedication at no point does this limit the accessibility of the book even for those unacuainted with Libyan history The Life Tree Poems risk everything to provide secret intelligence or commit daring acts of civil disobedience to bring the The Painter regime down knowing that the punishment if caught would be torture and death The fall of Gaddafi who was for forty two years the great autocrat madman on the world stage is among the past decade’s most dramatic pivot points In Lindsey Hilsum it has found its definitive chronicl.
