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

Read & download Sandstorm Sandstorm Summary ì 106 Read Ü PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB Ë Lindsey Hilsum Over a uarter century the renowned British international correspondent Lindsey Hilsum has covered crisis and conflict around the world In February 2011 at the first stirrings of revolt she went to Libya and began to chronicle the personal stories of people living through a time of unprecedented danger and opportunity She reported the progress of the revolution on the ground from the conflict of the early months through the toppling of Gaddafi’s regime and his savage death in the desert In Sandstorm she tells the full story of the events of the rev. In the early months of 2011 the Arab world was shaken apart by the cry of revolutions Beginning with Tunisia the Arab Spring as it came to be called as uickly spread to other states such as Egypt Libya Bahrain and Syria After years of subjugation and repression under autocratic and ruthless dictatorial regimes the people in these countries guided by the tech savvy and social media inspired younger generation took to the streets demanding for a change towards democracy This book is an unbiased first hand account of the revolution in Libya leading to the fall of Gaddafi regime written by an able war correspondent who weathered the vagaries of a near civil war to bring truth before the worldThrowing light on the causes that led to the onset of the revolution the author explains using testimonies of the most significant stakeholders Libyan people how the prevalent corruption and high handedness of the violent Gaddafi regime not only thwarted institution building but also led to extra judicial killings of a large number of common people accused of dissent The book also reflects on the past incidents which establish Gaddafi as a rogue despot and Libya as a Pariah state using terrorism to achieve its ends By giving voice to the rebels and regime players the author has reconstructed the entire chronology of the uprising in a manner which is easily comprehensible to the reader The book also contains sufficient material which unearths the duplicity of the West as it dealt with the growing protests in Libya and elsewhere such as Bahrain differently ostensibly to safeguard its own interests in the volatile middle east region Most importantly the book sounds caution as the transition government established after the fall of Tripoli went about carrying out its business Even as the people were basking in the toppling of forty two year old ruthless regime cracks appeared in the new government apparatus leaving the all too apparent divisions in the Libyan society for the world to see If the events in the last six years are anything to go by one can safely conclude that the warnings and apprehensions expressed by the author in the concluding pages of the book seem to be vindicated Overall an enlightening book for anyone who seeks to enlighten themselves about the Arab Spring as it played out in Libya

This gripping account of the Libyan revolution brings its chaos and violence to life but the live on the street narrative style fails to consistently provide a context for the action or a coherent timeline In contrast the circumstances of addafi s rise to power and the major events that marked his four decades of idiosyncratic rule are described in the manner of a conventional history While I learned a lot about Libya from this book it left me with uestions than answers In a sense that characteristic provides the greatest insight into the Libyan revolution which is an event still in search of its ultimate meaning Libya emerged from forty two years of bizarre autocracy and promptly fractured into a patchwork of tribal fiefdoms It still remains to be seen whether it will ever coalesce into a modern state
