Books: Libya

Over the years I have accumulated quite a lot of books and material related to Libya. My collection is mostly in English, but there are a few titles in Italian and some in English/Arabic. 

I decided to create this page so that others who share my interest in Libya will be able to find books that they might find interesting. I have added the cover, front and back, from most of the books with a short description. I haven't written any reviews or given any ratings. I will leave the comment section open for anyone that would like to share information or comments. 

Friends have given me books, I have found them in bookshops, and of course many books can be found on Amazon, but AbeBooks has a good selection of used books, magazines, journals, maps, etc. including many books that are no longer in print. 

I have only added my paperback and hard cover books and magazine/journals here so far. At a later date, I will also add the eBooks that I have collected.  This is an ongoing list that will be added to and amended from time to time. It's not very well organized - I will get to that eventually!

The Conscript - A novel of Libya's Anticolonial War
By Gebreyesus Hailu
Translated from Tigrinya by Ghirmai Negash
First Published 1927 (in Tigrinia) 
Published in English 2013
ISBN 978-0-8214-2023-2

The Conscript is a novel that depicts experiences of the Eritrean ascari, soldiers conscripted to fight in Libya by the Italian colonial army against the nationalist Libyan forces fighting for their freedom from Italy’s colonial rule. The author, paints a devastating portrait of Italian colonialism. Some of the most poignant passages of the novel include the awakening of the novel’s hero, Tuquabo, to his ironic predicament of being both under colonial rule and the instrument of suppressing the colonized Libyans.

The novel’s remarkable descriptions of the battlefield awe the reader with mesmerizing images, both disturbing and tender, of the Libyan landscape—with its vast desert sands, oases, horsemen, foot soldiers, and the brutalities of war—uncannily recalled in the satellite images that were brought to the homes of millions of viewers around the globe in 2011, during the country’s uprising against its former leader, Colonel Gaddafi.

This is the story of a young Libyan woman (the author is using a pseudonym), who has spent much of her life in England, but has returned to Libya after graduation.

In a world full of twentieth century male explorers, Rosita Forbes stood alone. The famed English woman traveled wide and far, often in perilous conditions.  She traveled by car from Kabul to Samarkand in style. In need of new adventures, the intrepid female journalist and explorer decided to penetrate the infamous wastes of the Libyan deserts. There she met and interviewed a mysterious sheikh and discovered the legendary lost city of the Sahara, Kufara.  Her book describes a classic 1920s adventure complete with a dashing Egyptian noblemen, a cast of notorious camels, and their noisome crew. And though “Secret of the Sahara” is full of the political observations and interesting interviews that made Rosita a justifiably famous travel writer, the ever-dashing English woman also regales her reader with poetic passages about the beauty of the desert world she had wandered into. The “Secrets of the Sahara” is still fresh and charming after all these years, just like its beautiful adventuress of an author (pictured below).

Remembering Libya and the Sahara is the true story of the author’s move to Tripoli, Libya where he and his family lived for four years during the “pre-Ghaddafi” era. From 1954 to 1958, C.M. Rhodes served as a missionary in a country that, 53 years later would incinerate into a hot bed of political and social upheaval, violence and death. Mr. Rhodes’ memoir details the history of the region, customs of the Arab people, travels to explore ancient ruins and sites in surrounding cities, plus day-to-day life in a culture so different from his own it demanded a new mind-set. While living in Tripoli, Mr. Rhodes received the invitation of a lifetime – to cross the Sahara Desert by jeep as the guest of Somalia’s Vice General, Dr. Gualtiero Benardelli. That 4-week trek over a 6,000-mile stretch of sand and rock was fraught with challenges, hardships and danger. Twice the author’s life was threatened. The diary Mr. Rhodes kept and countless photos taken along the way capture his Sahara adventure – encounters with African natives, indigenous wildlife, and breathtaking scenery. Join him for a trip down Memory Lane in an Africa that used to be.

The board includes a caption stating “The Martyrs of Libyan Airline Flight Number LN1103 Which Was Shot Down by Criminal Ghaddafi Over Tripoli in 1992/12/22.” She doesn’t let the civil war raging in Libya—or the pleas of her family—sway her when she decides to travel to Benghazi and see for herself.

Once in Libya, she meets other relatives of victims and learns of the atrocities allegedly committed by Abdullah Senussi, Ghaddafi’s security chief believed to be responsible for the Flight LN1103 attack. Living Under Terror is the second book by Prazak, who continues to work tirelessly to uncover the truth.
