Description: Libyas enigmatic Muammar Qaddafi has demonstrated a perhaps unprecedented capacity for reinvention and survival, particularly in the realm of foreign policy. Yehudit Ronen traces Libyas sometimes tortuous trajectory in international affairs across the four decades of Qaddafis leadership. Ronen addresses a range of critical issues: oil politics, foreign military adventurism, WMDs, international terrorism, the confrontation between Islam and the West, and the constraints of US policy in the Middle East. She also sheds abundant light on the many ways that domestic politics have affected Libyas international role. From internal leadership rivalries to international strategic quandaries, she navigates the major course corrections that have reoriented the countrys focus from the Arab Middle East and the Soviet Union to the African continent and the West.
