By John Wright (2009)

In September 1969 Moammar Gadafi seized power in Libya in a military coup. To mark the 40th anniversary of this event, John Wright made this selection from his own shorter writings which examine and explain Libya’s complex and troubled past – the historical interplay of events, influences and personalities that helped to shape the modern state.

John Wright, was formerly the chief political commentator and analyst of the BBC Arabic Service, specialising in Libya, the Sahara and the international oil industry.
