'The Martyrdom of Muammar Gaddafi: 21st Century Fascism & Resistance' is edited by Sukant Chandan and features a range of articles that puts into contexts one of the most controversial conflicts of the 20th and 21st Century: the modern history of Libya in relation to the West and Nato.
Sukant Chandan is a long-standing advocate for justice for victims of Nato and Western militaristic crimes against humanity, he is a frequent guest on TV news debate programs and has travelled extensively to areas of conflicts including Palestine, nothern Ireland, Lebanon and Libya. Chandan's research in part for this book was done during his three visits to Tripoli, Libya at the time of the Nato operation.
Featuring 21 contributions in six chapters from writers from across the world, the book facilitates the reader appreciating this recent history from the point of view of those who are vested in supporting global south countries overcome the legacies of colonialism and imperialism. Contributors include Muammar Gaddafi, Moussa Ibrahim, Saeb Sha'ath, Robert Mugabe, Akbar Muhammad (Nation of Islam), Gerald Perreira, Eric Draitser, Dan Glazebrook, Dr Fazal Rahman, Fidel Castro, Robert Mugabe, Nelson Mandela and many others.
The subject of Libya has at the same time a considerable amount of airtime due to the many fallouts from the Nato campaign against Libya, these have included the so-called 'migration problem' are the directly connected tragic deaths of migrants in the Mediterranean Sea, destabilisation and conflict throughout North Africa but many other regions in Africa and into West Asia and further afield. What this book brings is a unique publication that takes the reader into the areas of critical analysis, analysis that is marginalised in the Western mainstream political media. The Martyrdom of Muammar Gaddafi is a must-read for anyone who would like a serious account of what happened to Libya and the ramifications of internal and external players in Libya for the last half century.
