Although Libya and its leader have been the subject of numerous accounts, few have considered how the country's tumultuous history, its institutional development and its emergence as an oil economy combined to create a state whose rulers ignored the notion of modern statehood. International isolation and a legacy of internal turmoil have destroyed or left undocumented much of what researchers might seek to examine. Dirk Vandewalle supplies a detailed analysis of Libya's political and economic development since the country's independence in 1951, basing his account on fieldwork in Libya, archival research in Tripoli and personal interviews with some of the country's top policymakers.
