Socialist People’s Libyan Arab Jamahiriya
Canberra: Socialist People’s Libyan Arab Jamahiriya, no date.
Back in the 1980s the shine had yet to come off Muammar Gaddafi’s “people’s revolution” in Libya, and according to the authors of this book, people around the world were eager to find out more about his political philosophy, Jamahiriya. The publishers were members of Gaddafi’s government, and sought through this colourful, optimistic work to sell their movement to the world. This genuine political artefact is a fascinating look inside a movement that had yet to find its limits.
