The Green And The Black: Qadhafi's Policies In Africa

Edited by René Lemarchand
Indiana University Press, 1988
188 pp. $29.95
Purchase

In reading this volume what is striking is how many of his foreign policy options Qaddafi seems to have used up-to no avail. His North African unions having both ended in divorce and his military and diplomatic forays south of the Sahara having resulted in his resounding rejection as leader of the OAU, the energies of the Libyan juggernaut within its own continent have been severely circumscribed. Thus the global arena may have to be the main future field of operations for this jaunty adventurer.
