Things were not well in Muammar al-Gaddafi’s Libya long before the uprising that began in February 2011. Years of aggression against the West, its Middle Eastern and African neighbours, and the Libyan people themselves, had led to US and UN sanctions and to Libya’s isolation. A pariah on the world stage, Gaddafi struggled to maintain order by cracking down on Libya’s restive population. Following the rise of al Qaeda and the war in Iraq, the international community threw Gaddafi an unexpected lifeline. The rogue state became a much-soughtafter ally, striking deals with the West and promising internal reforms unlikely ever to be realised. As this revelatory book conclusively demonstrates, however, Gaddafi would soon reap the whirlwind, as his feints toward reform actually engendered a revolutionary movement that proved all too real – and powerful – to be put down. In Exit Gaddafi, Middle East expert and former diplomat Ethan Chorin provides an unprecedented look into the roots of the Libyan Uprising. He explains why the revolution happened as it did and explores the longer-term consequences for Libya and the West. ‘A scary story of greed, intrigue and political corruption at the highest levels of several nations, including the US and the UK … A must read’ Ambassador Joseph Wilson, author of The Politics of Truth ‘Sophisticated and penetrating analysis ... Chorin’s book will undoubtedly remain the best analytical work on Libya and its revolution for a very long time.’ Dirk Vandewalle, author of A History of Modern Libya
